Abstract

We have presented three cases of airway obstruction after ETI. An algorithm is provided for a rapid, systematic approach to this potentially fatal complication. Particular care must be used when securing the pilot balloon on the endotracheal tube of the Army Anesthesia Field set to prevent loss of the unsecured endotracheal tube cuff in the patient's airway.
