This book addresses the “know what” (facts) and the “know why” (Science), and utilizes concepts by pairing the use of knowledge with technology, and then concludes with the “know how to do” chapter. This chapter aims to enable clinicians in solving everyday clinical encounters.
We have collected numerous simple, complex and interesting airway-management clinical cases, and presented them in a simple and practical way.
We hope that this may assist in better management of these cases and will inspire our colleagues to push the boundaries to make treatment safer and successful and safe life of our pateints. So, we will discuss the following items for each case: clinical picture, examination, investigations, conventional radiological diagnosis, and radiological 3-D and VE effects on diagnosis, surgical intervention: and airway management.
