Predictive validity of acromio-axillo-suprasternal notch index for assessing difficult laryngoscopic view
Author(s): Dr. Shabbir Ali Jafarali Mulla and Dr. Nagendar Prasad
Abstract: these tests either individually or in combination failed to predict difficult visualization of larynx reliably. So the quest for a new test continues. All patients were enrolled in the study after obtaining written consent. Study was conducted after obtaining permission from ethical committee of the hospital. It was a prospective, comparative, observational study. A sample size of 250 was calculated. Of the total 219 patients in EVL 20(9.1) were having AASI of >0.5 and 199(90.9) had AASI <0.5; Out of 31 patients in DVL 21(67.7) had AASI >0.5 and 10(32.3) had AASI<0.5. Pre-operative detection of difficult intubation in patients at risk forms the most important part of pre-anesthetic evaluation.
