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 
R. Tino Greif 
President of the European Airway Management Society


Dear colleagues,

I hope you are healthy and happy in this odd, new and unusual world.

In my department, I work as a pediatric anesthetist at Hacettepe University Hospital, we keep taking urgent and of course emergency cases during this period by taking safety measures. Video laryngoscopes as a most significant step of these safety measures, gained very much importance .

Videolaryngoscopes are useful in tracheal intubation in adults and in children, but it is not clear whether or not there are differences in efficacies between the different types of video laryngoscopes in children.

I have read the following two articles, one is editorial, interestedly. Although derived from retrospective analysis, these findings of Peyton and colleagues'make a useful contribution to our understanding of device performance across paediatric patients.

1. Peyton J, Park R, Staffa SJ, et al; PeDI Collaborative Investigators. A comparison of videolaryngoscopy using standard blades or non-standard blades in children in the Paediatric Difficult Intubation Registry. 

2. Norris A, Armstrong J. Comparative videolaryngoscope performance in children: data from the Pediatric Difficult Intubation Registry. 

Wish you healthy days,

Özgür Canbay
