About this research project
This study aims to investigate high-flow oxygen in shared airway anaesthesia. Patients undergoing shared airway procedures will benefit through the determination of which airway management procedure (high-flow oxygen or standard care) results in the most favourable patient outcomes. The results of this project will highlight which management strategy is most beneficial to patients in terms of physiological response and self-perceived satisfaction which then incorporated into patient care may reduce the life-threatening hypoxemia and improve outcomes such as ICU admission or even cardiac arrest. This research has the potential to influence best practices for airway management in shared airway procedures around the world once published in a peer-review anaesthetic journal.
