Tracheal Introducers and Airway Trauma COVID-19

[Br J Anaesth] (2020) [Epub ahead of print]

  • Covid-19 airway is more inflamed and frail, therefore more prone to trauma
  • Advocating video laryngoscope + bougie in Covid-19 Intubation to achieve first pass success & reduce the risk of bougie-related tracheal trauma
  • Never advance the bougie blindly and by force
  • Do not pass the bougie > 8 cm after vocal cord
  • Multidisciplinary evaluation is recommended should such airway trauma occur
