Successful airway management demands strict attention to anatomic detail and the ability to tailor management strategies to each patient’s illness and presentation. With the Atlas of Airway Management, readers will discover a clinically focused, abundantly illustrated guide to relevant anatomy, as well as the latest tools and proven techniques in the field.

 The Second Edition of this respected resource presents an improved and enlarged text—along with new sections on pediatric applications, bronchoscopy, special airway considerations in the emergency room and the ICU, and post-intubation care issues. Coverage of new and emerging techniques includes material on noninvasive ventilation and high-frequency jet ventilation.

 A wealth of helpful features…

• Clinical orientation of the text emphasizes practical approaches over theory.
• Concise presentation and abundant lists make key facts easy to find and retain.
• Lavishly illustrated design includes high-quality color photographs and drawings to help readers better identify key anatomic features.
• Step-by-step "how-to" approach delivers practical procedural guidance.
• Coverage of the latest tools and techniques embraces the fields of anesthesiology, critical care, pediatric critical care, and emergency medicine.

 NEW in the Second Edition…

• Improved and enlarged illustration program facilitates visual learning
• Co-editor, Paul Bigeleisen, brings his expertise in anesthesiology to the text.
New chapters address airway management solutions for patients with obstructive sleep apnea and morbid obesity, as well as airway issues for gynecologic patients.
• A new section addresses surgical situations requiring specialized airway management.
• Updated information on the latest tools addresses devices such as the Glidescope and other video-type laryngoscopes.
• Companion website includes the complete and fully searchable text. 

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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David B. Glick, MD, MBA (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive collection of well illustrated techniques for both common and uncommon approaches to airway management.
Purpose: The author's aim is to facilitate the teaching of simple and complicated techniques for airway management to relatively inexperienced trainees. A book of this sort is an extremely useful tool for anyone learning or teaching the gamut of techniques now available for controlling a patient's airway. The author successfully achieves his aim with brief, clearly worded explanations/directions and excellent cadaveric, radiologic, and bronchoscopic images.
Audience: The book is intended for medical students and residents who encounter airway issues in the operating room or emergency room settings, but any practitioner interested in using a new technique for airway management will find the descriptions and illustrations in helpful.
Features: The chapters provide step-by-step instructions for the performance of many of the current techniques for airway management. The illustrations are clear and the descriptions are easy to follow. The only flaw in the book is that a particularly important chapter for the junior trainee — pharmacology of airway management — had errors in the onset time for the muscle relaxants (seconds instead of minutes) and, more importantly, listed a dose of atropine as 10-20 mg/kg instead of mcg/kg.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for learning or teaching about airway management. It provides the broadest coverage of the topic I have come across, and the illustrations are excellent.
