training on failed tracheal intubation in obstetrics. Sperati, G; Felisati, D (2007). We are pleased to announce the publication in Anaesthesia, of the Obstetric Anaesthetists Association and Difficult Airway Society guidelines for the management of difficult and failed tracheal intubation in obstetrics. Prehospital intubation in patients with severe head injury. Rapid-sequence intubation in the field versus hospital in trauma patients. Elewaut, A; Cremer, M (2002). Surgeons could not seem to reach a consensus on where or how the tracheal incision should be made, arguing whether the "high tracheotomy" or the "low tracheotomy" was more beneficial.
