Morbidly obese patients are in the group of patients, who can desaturate fast because of changes in lung volumes and reduction in Functional Residual Capasity due to obesity. There are novel methods to improve preoxygenation and to maintain oxygneation during intubation efforts. In this paper we present methods of apneic oxygenation for morbidly obese patients.
