Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Anesthesiologists and otolaryngologists share the airway in an elegant ballet that requires communication, collaboration, and mutual respect. This article addresses principles to prevent or manage challenging conditions such as airway fires, anatomically difficult airways, and post-tonsillectomy hemorrhage. Discussion includes rationales for the use of simulation and resilience engineering principles to achieve the safest patient care.
