Airway management is a vital component of administering anesthesia, allowing for the exchange of gases between the patient and the surrounding atmosphere. Difficult or unsuccessful management of the airway is a significant source of anesthesia-related morbidity and mortality . As such, it is important for anesthesia providers to be adept at all aspects of managing the airway. A thorough understanding of the pertinent anatomy and physiology, the ability to use clinical evaluation to identify potential difficulties, and a mastery of interventional techniques and procedures are crucial to safe and effective airway management. This chapter presents a comprehensive overview of the elements related to effective airway management.
Woven fabric ceramic composites fabricated by the chemical vapor infiltration method are susceptible to high void content and inhomogeneity. The condition of such materials may be characterized nondestructively with ultrasonic methods. In this work, longitudinal and shear waves were used in the quantitative determination of elastic constants of NicalonTM/SiC composites as a function of volume percent of porosity. Elastic stiffness constants were obtained for both the inplane and out-of-plane directions with respect to fiber fabric. The effect of porosity on the modulus of woven fabric composites was also modelled and compared to the measured results. Scan images based on the amplitude and time-of-flight of radio frequency (RF) ultrasonic pulses were used for evaluating the material homogeneity for the purpose of optimizing the manufacturing process and for correlation with the mechanical testing results.
