British Laryngological Association Advancements through multidisciplinary collaboration

Laryngoscopy
Surgery, Narration, Capture and Editing - Guri Sandhu, UK
An instructional video on the surgical technique of a laryngoscopy.
None so far...
This case is with jet ventilation and so no ET tube. This is not appropriate in all patients, especially obese patients who rapidly desaturate.
Head support
many people use a pillow that they manipulate to support the head. I have moved over to a firm horseshoe as used here as modern pillows are not malleable in the same way and the horseshoe gives a sturdier, safer support.
Suspension
In this video you will see Guri’s excellent suspension support tables. I have a traditional mayo table and clamp, which is often not flat, is not easy to adjust and frequently a bit wobbly. We need to pressurise Guri into getting these tables manufactured. For paediatric cases there is a nice design of a clear perspex box that bridges over the child.
