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 airway enthusiasts,

This month’s article is a recently published paper in Lancet about video laryngoscopy in small infants.
In this multicenter, randomised controlled trial, the primary outcome was the proportion of patients with successful orotracheal intubation on the first attempt. Secondary outcomes were number of intubation attempts; time to successful orotracheal intubation; proportion of unsuccessful intubations with the randomly assigned device; and proportion of non-severe and severe complications.
A nice comparison of video laryngoscopy and direct laryngoscopy in routine, non-emergency intubations under ideal conditions.

Have fun reading the full text in:

With best wishes

Kemal Tolga Saracoglu, Prof MD DESA FEAMS
