The surgeon shouts: “Stop. ” Question What is that the surgeon wants to do before you can place the patient in Trendelenburg?

Solution It is very important to realize that the McConnell is attached to the sidebar of the operating room table. Since the patient’s arm is on the McConnell armrest, it is locked in too.

Since she has been in Trendelenburg position for most of that time, her face and neck are very swollen. You are reluctant to remove the endotracheal tube (ETT) at the end of the surgery, although the surgeon sees no problem. You perform a leak test. This is traditionally done by auscultating the presence of breath sounds after deflating the cuff and occluding the ETT. You have difficulty hearing if an audible leak is present at the mouth [1]. You attempt the cuff-leak volume test (difference between inspiratory tidal volume and expiratory tidal volume while the cuff is deflated).
