In which case is endotracheal intubation technique indicated?

1. Why is endotracheal intubation required?

Endotracheal intubation is a solution to maintain an open airway and invasive artificial ventilation by inserting a plastic tube into the patient's airway. The method of intubation is performed according to different pathological situations, for the following purposes:
Maintain breathing when the patient has respiratory failure; Respiratory support when the patient has an airway obstruction; Protect the airway when the patient is comatose or has lost airway reflexes; Control the airway during surgery requiring endotracheal anesthesia. Endotracheal intubation is a good and effective way to control the airway in the field of surgery, resuscitation and emergency. Despite the potential risks, this is still a necessary and mandatory procedure when looking for ways to support a patient's life.

To open the airways in cases of airway obstruction management due to foreign bodies, phlegm, water, food...; Loss of protective airway reflexes due to head trauma, circulatory arrest... Intrusive artificial ventilation: Intubation is also used in the following cases:
Anesthesia for the patient's airway; Support patients with hypoxemia due to pulmonary edema, pneumonia; Increased carbon dioxide due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchial asthma ; Support for patients with acute respiratory failure: Used for most acute respiratory failure, except for cases requiring ventilation by means of controlled alveolar hypoventilation: Acute lung injury due to blunt trauma to the lung, due to drowning, by inhalation...; Decreased alveolar ventilation due to neuromuscular disease, CNS disease, poisoning; Exacerbation of chronic respiratory failure; After resuscitation, circulatory arrest.
