Article of the Month


Dear colleagues and airway enthusiast 
The European Airway Management Society is introducing a new feature – Article of the Month. 
This is designed to provide an opportunity to our members to highlight and share airway related topics and to open discussion forums in order to share clinical experience for the benefit of all EAMS members. 
The Article of the Month will be made available via the EAMS website and is going to be accompanied by a short text (up to 200 words) explaining why is this article being selected. 
EAMS members with login to will have access to the articles as full-text PDF's.
We would like to encourage our members to propose articles of the month. The short text accompanying the article will also be made available on line with full acknowledgement of the author who proposed the article. 
The final decision to go on-line will be taken by the EAMS Board of Directors. 

Best regards

Hi, my dear airway enthusiastic friends.

A lot of papers run into my head to be selected for “article of the month”. 

I finally decided to present you this one:

Tracheostomy in the COVID-19 era: global and multidisciplinary guidance 

Three reasons directed me to this choice

- The interest of the topic in this COVID-19 pandemic. There have been published a lot of papers on tracheostomy in the COVID-19 patient by several scientific societies and working groups coming from different medical disciplines, mainly Head and Neck surgery, Critical Care, and Anaesthesiology. This paper tries to summarize all opinions.

- The multidiscipline and international composition of the group of authors (30), most of them known experts on the topic, coming from (in alphabetical order) Australia, China, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, UK and USA

-The accurate update of the paper (24 references from a total of 45 were published in 2020 and 2 more papers were “in press”)

There is an excellent summary of recommendations about patient selection, timing of tracheostomy, performance and management after procedure

I hope you enjoy this paper.
