Stefan Johansson Posted May 2, 2021 Share Posted May 2, 2021 (edited) On behalf of the 99nicu Team, I would like to invite you to participate in our 2nd Journal Club! The article we chose this time is a review article on "Safe emergency neonatal airway management: current challenges and potential approaches" by Joyce E O'Shea, Alexandra Scrivens, Gemma Edwards, and Charles Christoph Roehr. This artile is not Open Access, but I hope you can get it from your hospital library. The review article examines how to acutely manage the neonatal airway, and the challenges related facemask ventilation and intubation. Some of the key messages in this paper are: Intubation success rates are low, especially for inexperienced trainees Universal intubation competency for all pediatric and neonatal trainees and consultants may no longer be possible Videolaryngoscopy can help increase rates The laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is a promising alternative to intubation Some of the questions we would like to discuss are: What is current practice in your department? How to do you manage the airways and who is doing what? What do you think are the strengths of this review article? What do you think are some of the limitations? Will this review have an impact in your department? If no - why? If yes, how? We are looking forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions!
