Tan, I; Wang, C Y (1993) Fibreoptic intubation--a case series and brief review. The Medical journal of Malaysia, 48 (2). pp. 200-6. ISSN 0300-5283Full text not available from this repository.
Fibreoptic intubation has been established as a major advance in the management of difficult or failed intubation in the awake patient. If necessary, it may be performed under general anaesthesia with either spontaneous or controlled ventilation. This should be considered early in the management of failed intubation, before multiple attempts with other techniques lead to haemorrhage and oedema in the airway. We describe here selected case reports to illustrate this in 8 different situations. This is followed by a brief review of the technique and indications of fibreoptic intubation.
