Watch how it improves airway function.

BARIATRIC POSITIONING FOR EASIER BREATHING.

DO IT FOR THE OBESE PATIENT:

  • Ease of breathing
  • Better pre-oxygenation
  • Good positioning compliments gea & regional cases

DO IT FOR THE ANESTHESIA PROVIDER

  • Ease of breathing = less anxious obese patient.
  • Better pre-02 = increased desaturation safety period.
  • Easier to mask ventilate
  • Facilitates 1st pass successful intubation (good positioning compliments all forms of airway management … dl, glidescope, airtraq etc.)

JUST ADJUST THE O.R. TABLE:

  • Not good enough
  • The airway axes do not change
  • You cannot adjust the cystoscopy table

TEP = EASY / STABLE / PREDICTABLE (RESULT)

  • Meant to replace a stack of blankets
  • “Blessing of the blankets” (but) today’s obese patients = a stack of unstable blankets
