Dear airway enthousiast:
This month's EAMS article of the month and webinar focus on critically ill patient's airway management, since the most commonly performed procedures in these patients are related with airway management, including tracheal intubation and tracheostomy. 
Firstly, the “DAS Guidelines for the management of tracheal intubation in critically ill patients”  provide strategies to optimize oxygenation, airway management, and tracheal intubation in these patients, in all hospital locations. These guidelines stress the importance of human factors for improved outcomes of emergency airway management: the role of the airway team, a shared mental model, planning, and communication throughout airway management.
Secondly, the recently published observational multicenter: “Intubation Practices and Adverse Peri-intubation Events in Critically Ill Patients From 29 Countries”  concluded that major adverse events occur frequently. The reported adverse events in patients undergoing emergency intubation are: cardiovascular instability, severe hypoxemia, and cardiac arrest.
Furthermore, to deepen our understanding of these adverse events, previous studies where Janz et al  and Russel et al  explore possible measures to prevent cardiovascular collapse secondary to intubation are included.
Finally, with the aim of preventing hypoxemia Casey et al  focus on the advantages and disadvantages of face mask ventilation and, Jaber et al , discuss the preferred intubation devices in this setting.
Enjoy reading and looking forward to the webinar!
