Escribá et al. Emergency Ventilation of Infant Subglottic Stenosis Through Small-Gauge Lumen Using the Ventrain: A Case Report. A A Prac 2018 Mar 15;10(6):136-138

Dr Escribá presents the rescue of a difficult airway in a pediatric patient with subglottic stenosis with Ventrain. When the patient desaturated, the device enabled immediate ventilation during airway assessment through a rigid bronchoscope and restoration of normal oxygen saturation. Then, post intubation, ventilation with the Ventrain was valuable again, when conventional mechanical PICU ventilation was very difficult due to elevated pressures. This case clearly indicates that the new ventilation device Ventrain offers advantages over devices available until now.
