Abstract

Special care is required for airway management of patients undergoing emergency Cesarean section. Although the incidence of difficult intubation and difficult ventilation is similar between pregnant and non-pregnant women, the severity of complications in pregnant patients would be much greater than in non-pregnant patients, if tracheal intubation is found to be difficult: increased risk of pulmonary aspiration, hypoxia, airway obstruction due to laryngeal edema, and a "sleeping baby" being taken out. Rapid-sequence induction of anesthesia is generally indicated to a patient undergoing emergency Cesarean section under general anesthesia. The technique has been evolving, without losing the key premise of minimizing the period of the airway being not protected from pulmonary aspiration, and of permitting rapid wake up if tracheal intubation fails. In this review, I describe the appropriate airway management, based on the current state of knowledge, in a patient undergoing emergency Cesarean section under general anesthesia.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 June 2015.
All research outputs
#8,528,735
of 13,588,841 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Anesthesia
#224
of 569 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#124,010
of 233,803 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Anesthesia
#10
of 17 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,588,841 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 569 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 233,803 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 17 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
