The mode of ventilation depends on the type of surgery being undertaken . High-frequency jet ventilation gives an optimal surgical view but. approach to the airway and jet ventilation (JV) is a mutually convenient Ossoff RH: Laser safety in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery. ObjectiveTo describe our experience with superimposed high-frequency jet ventilation (SHFJV), JAMA Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery .. This was partly achieved when various forms of jet ventilation were introduced for surgical .

E indicates inspiration-expiration; P, pressure. Get free access to newly published articles. Topical laryngeal anaesthesia and administration of a short-acting opioid will diminish the stress response to surgery during lqryngology.

This has the disadvantages of poor airway protection and poor control laryngooogy depth of anaesthesia but the advantage of an unobstructed surgical view. Percutaneous tracheostomy is usually carried out in Intensive Care Units, although, rarely, it may be performed in the operating theatre as an emergency.

LFJV is easy to perform, requiring uncomplicated anaesthetic equipment. Anesthesiol Clin North America. The jet laryngoscope C. With the longer operating times, the number of patients decreases because fewer patients required extensive surgery.

The low-frequency jet stream provides 8 to 20 breaths per minute and serves primarily to remove carbon dioxide.

The Albert-Sanders adaptor for ventilating anaesthetized patients for micro-laryngeal surgery. This is a common fentilation using a long, narrow, cuffed tracheal tube e. These tubes allow conventional positive pressure ventilation. Anesthesia for airway surgery. Create a free personal account to download free article PDFs, sign up for alerts, customize your interests, and more. Management options for the anaesthetist include: However, TIVA and complex equipment are required, it is difficult to monitor carbon dioxide concentration, the airway is not protected by cuffed tube, and there is a risk of barotrauma.


High-frequency jet ventilation–a review of its role in laryngology.

This allows the use of standard bentilation equipment in normal operating mode. A cuff is inflated in the trachea, protecting the lower airway from contamination.

The other Laryngojet; Acutronic Corp, Jona-Rapperswil, Switzerland has electromagnetic valves and is controlled by a microcomputer. The SHFJV was applied, and all 12 patients received adequate ventilation Figure 3 during the entire surgical procedure. Figure 4 shows the positioned jet laryngoscope during SHFJV and the free airway in a patient with squamous cell carcinoma of the right anterior larynggology cord.

Because of the development of pediatric jet laryngoscopes, SHFJV is also applicable for laryngeal procedures in children. In 12 patients with severe hypoxemia due to extensive laryngeal stenosis, intubation was considered impossible. Nebulized epinephrine 2—3 ml of 1: In several patients with papillomatosis, endoscopic examinations at monthly intervals were performed after surgery using SHFJV, and in all patients the trachea was normal.

The population presenting for airway surgery mainly falls into two categories. Both jet ventilators are capable of providing 2 ventialtion jet streams with 2 different frequencies simultaneously, and both have an integrated alarm system with an inspiratory peak pressure limit. Local anaesthesia for fibreoptic endoscopic examination commonly nasendoscopy in the clinic setting.

Arterial blood gas values were analyzed.

Superimposed High-Frequency Jet Ventilation for Laryngeal and Tracheal Surgery

In patients with laryngeal stenosis Cotton II and III4 respiration might be impaired to such a degree that even surgical procedures using local anesthesia might not be possible. Air is still entrained, although generated tidal volumes are much smaller than those used in conventional ventilation. Demonstration of lwryngology positioned jet laryngoscope during ventilation and the free airways in a patient with squamous cell carcinoma of the right anterior vocal cord.


This stream of high-velocity gas entrains air, increasing the tidal volume generated and diminishing the larungology concentration of the inspired gas.

High-frequency jet ventilation–a review of its role in laryngology.

Lryngology ventilation pressure was measured continuously at the tip of the jet laryngoscope, and arterial blood gas analysis was performed every 5 minutes. Specifically designed masks are worn to reduce this risk.

Often there is limited time for assessment and investigation. Many patients return for multiple procedures. Copyright American Medical Association. Direct laryngoscopy is performed to investigate and treat potential pathology in the upper airway and may or may not involve the use of an operating microscope.

Except in the 3 patients mentioned earlier, the SaO 2 was always more than The patients’ diagnoses are listed in Table 1. Movements of the vocal cords due to the low-frequency jet stream are diminished to a great extent by the high-frequency jet stream, which prevents a complete closure of the vocal cords, and only a slight movement of the peripheral parts of the vocal cords is observed.

Preoperative identification of neck pathology is important since the atlanto-axial joint is extended almost maximally.
