Prof. Moied conducting the workshop on Management of Difficult Airways at Guhawati Medical College, AMU-ALIGARH January 17: Dr. S Moied Ahmed, Professor, Department of Anaesthesiology and Teacher In-Charge, ICU, J. N. Medical College, Aligarh Muslim University was invited to conduct workshop on “Management of Difficult Airways” during the 61st Annual Conference of Indian Society of Anaesthesiologists held at Guwahati Medical College, Assam. Prof Moied provided training to delegates how to manage patients in the Operation Theater who cannot be ventilated and intubated during delivering anaesthesia.

“Cannot ventilate cannot intubate”, a critical situation, commonly known as CVCI, arises when a patient on the operation table waiting to be operated cannot be anaesthetized because of various facial and oral abnormalities. During this situation the patient can become hypoxic because of difficulty in ventilation and intubation and can even sustain cardiac arrest and die. According to American Society of Anaesthesiologists, Difficult Airway Society, UK and Canadian Society of Anaesthesiologists, one of the best ways to save the life of patient is to making a hole in the throat immediately and flushing oxygen into the patient’s lungs through the hole. The two techniques by which the hole can be made and oxygen can be flushed are known as needle transtracheal jet ventilation and surgical cricothyrotomy.

In view of his experience in Cardiac Anaesthesia and Critical Care at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi, Prof Moied was also invited to Chair a Session on the “Advancement in Cardiac Anaesthesia”. He summarized the recent developments in anaesthetizing patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG). He highlighted the importance of Cardiac Anaesthetists and their role in the advancement of Open Cardiac Surgery both during On-Pump and Off-Pump using Octopus Clamps.
