Standard induction (IV or gas)
Maintenance using TIVA:
- propofol 400 -> 300 -> 100 mcg/kg/min
- remi 0.2 – 0.1 mcg/kg/min
- Use to judge adequate depth of anaesthesia
- insert nasal uncuffed (standard) ETT to level just proximal to cords
- Spray larynx/cords/distally – take max allowed dose of lignocaine 10%, dilute to make up to desired volume, spray using MAD/atomiser
- Aim for spontaneous ventilation of oxygen enriched air while applying PEEP with bag
- Can hand ventilate if mouth is closed (but risks insufflation of stomach)
