Will A Patient Be Difficult To Intubate?

Posted by Frank Spector | Feb 18, 2019 | 0 Comments

A new report from the medical world shows a simple test to determine if a patient will be difficult to intubate or not. Intubation is when a tube is placed down the throat to help a patient breathe during anesthesia.

Intubation can become tricky if not placed properly. Complications include placing the tube in the food pipe rather than the air pipe. Broken teeth or damage to the mouth is another bad thing that can occur.

It turns out that the best predictor of whether a patient will be easy or difficult to intubate is based on the patient's ability to bite the upper lip with the lower teeth. Just by testing the bite can be the difference between a good result and bad result.

If you suspect that there has been medical malpractice from a botched intubation, call us toll free at 1-800-299-4878 (HURT).
