Management of the Difficult and Failed Airway, Third Edition by These revised recommendations for the management of the difficult and failed airway are reflected in all chapters of this edition of the textbook including the new chapters. For example, two chapters (Chapters 6 and 34) were added to this edition to address “human factors” as they relate to the stresses and strains of difficult and failed airway management. The Difficult Airway Society guidelines specifically acknowledge the importance of human factors in crisis resource management. Interpreted in context, the application of the four basic methods of oxygenation (bag-mask-ventilation, use of extraglottic devices, tracheal intubation, and front of neck access) remains the most logical approach for managing a failed airway. Furthermore, the National Audit Project 4 (NAP4) and other studies have consistently identified difficulties associated with needle (Seldinger technique) cricothyrotomy such that it has become clear that when faced with a “cannot intubate, cannot oxygenate” (CICO) situation, surgical (open) cricothyrotomies are much more successful than needle or Seldinger cricothyrotomies. Many chapters of this edition emphasized the importance of early front of neck access using open cricothyrotomy in the adult population.
