Duke Anatomy - Lab 22: Retropharyngeal space

In the last lab you examined many of the structures on the anterior surface of the neck, and looked briefly at the retropharyngeal space and its contents while moving them aside, but you have not yet dissected those structures in detail. Today you will explore the prevertebral area and the back of the pharynx (retropharyngeal space) in much more detail. In order to do this the head must be detached from the vertebral column to allow a posterior approach to the cervical viscera. This is a challenging and labor-intensive dissection.

Different types of Inhaler

There are loads of types of inhalers! You need to be able to tell a patient how to use each type, and what type of drugs can go in each type.   With all inhalers, the amount of drug deposited on the mouth and pharynx is very high. Generally it is about 85% (even with good technique). This can improve to about 75% with different types of inhaler.   How a spacer works

When Chronic Hoarseness Isn't Reflux Disease

An unusual finding on a pelvic radiograph

A 74 year old man presented to the ear, nose, and throat department with breathlessness on exertion, intermittent voice hoarseness, and a sensation of catarrh in his throat. After a laryngoscopy with biopsy was performed, he was diagnosed as having a low grade chondrosarcoma of the larynx. Before surgical debulking of the lesion was carried out he underwent computed tomography of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. This confirmed the presence of a subglottic mass in the larynx but also showed a mixed lytic and sclerotic expansile lesion (5.8 cm (longitudinal)×1.6 cm (axial)×4.5 cm) in the left iliac blade of the pelvis. The pelvic lesion was well corticated, with internal ossified septae and calcification. Expansion of the left iliac wing was noted, with no breach in the cortex.

Meningitis (bacterial) and meningococcal septicaemia in under 16s: recognition, diagnosis and management | Guidance and guidelines | NICE

We checked this guideline and decided that it should not be updated at this time. For details, see the update decision and the process for deciding if an update is needed. We have also removed reference to throat swabs from recommendation 1.3.14, to bring it into line with Public Health England’s Guidance for public health management of meningococcal disease in the UK.

HUNGARIAN APNOEIC OXYGENATION

Apnoeic oxygenation in anaesthesia is the concept of providing oxygenation without ventilation. The idea is that even without lung expansion, oxygen will passively be dragged into the alveoli along the oxygen gradient caused by alveolar oxygen being transported away by the bloodstream. Hope that makes sense. If not, theres a better explanation at LITFL.  In theory, and in experimental conditions, the apnoeic patient will remain oxygenated indefinitely, given that the FiO2 in the pharynx is high enough and given that the airway is perfectly patent. The problem is rather hypercapnia and acidosis building up.
