Failed mask ventilation poses an increased risk of de-oxygenation to the patient undergoing general anesthesia. Nasopharyngeal ventilation may be a valid alternative for mask ventilation allowing for better oxygenation during the induction phase of general anesthesia. Oxygenation may be maintained better in case of difficult mask ventilation. This study evaluates this alternative method in comparison with the standard method of mask ventilation.
General Design This is a randomized, controlled, cross over study. Patients will be randomized to mask ventilation followed by nasopharyngeal airway placement and ventilation or vice versa.
Primary Study Endpoints We will test the hypothesis that ventilation via a nasally placed ETT is superior in its efficacy (as measured by tidal volume) to routine facemask ventilation in patients undergoing general anesthesia and endotracheal intubation for their surgery.
