This full-color atlas is a step-by-step pictorial guide to both routine and advanced airway management techniques. More than 300 photographs depict the tools involved; the placement of the tools in relation to anatomy in cadaver specimens; and the devices in use in various clinical scenarios. Succinct text summarizes the steps of each technique, the evidence supporting the technique, and the indications, contraindications, complications, practicality, and cost. Major sections demonstrate techniques for endotracheal intubation when direct laryngoscopy is difficult. These include adjuncts to direct laryngoscopy, blind intubation, light-guided intubation, retrograde intubation, fiberoptic techniques, emergency ventilation, combination techniques, and emergency surgical airways.
