A further bolus of sedation was administered but hypoxia developed due to two further unsuccessful attempts at laryngeal insertion. A facemask and oral adjuncts were used in an attempt to provide ventilation but this too was unsuccessful. A second consultant anaesthetist arrived to provide additional help but despite this and several attempts at direct laryngoscopy, the consultants were unable to intubate or ventilate. Twenty minutes of profound Chapter 2: Managing complications 15 hypoxia ensued.

28 Section 2: Clinical aspects of complications Anticipated airway obstruction due to an anatomical problem Anatomical abnormalities such as extreme neck flexion or reduced mouth opening indicate that facemask ventilation or direct laryngoscopy will be difficult or impossible. Documented problems with mask ventilation and tracheal intubation during previous operations are likely to recur during subsequent anaesthetics. When difficulty is anticipated, fibreoptic intubation under local anaesthetic is accepted as a safe form of airway management.

Where this is not done severe hypoxia and death will continue to occur from oesophageal intubation. Failure to detect exhaled CO2 in cases of OI has been attributed to cardiac arrest, anaphylaxis or equipment malfunction. Capnography is unavailable on most hospital wards and in some emergency departments and intensive therapy units (ITUs). Inadvertant OI is not entirely preventable. Even where anaesthetists report that they have seen a TT pass between the vocal cords OI still occurs. Humans are fallible; we sometimes see what we expect to see.
