4Modeling updates

Multiple "operative procedure cancelled" terms accepted, for July 2018 release

Discussion of terminology requests related to difficult airway management (see article by Cook et al). This article considers in detail terminology for adverse airway events and rescue procedures and aligns with various professional guidelines.

Difficult and failed masked ventilation terms ready for release. The related terms for supraglottic airway problems have been drafted. There is a lack of published definitions for these, but will be closely related to the mask terms.

The acronyms CICO (can't intubate, can't oxygenate) and CICV (can't intubate, can't ventilate) are in widespread use and reference in the article above. Requests made for additional description terms in 718085007 unable to ventilate and unable to oxygenate

Andrew Marchant is to model terms for the various emergency cricothyroidotomy techniques. 398142004 Emergency cricothyrotomy was discussed. The current parent is erroneous (construction of anastomosis) and this term is used in the literature as a synonym of emergency cricothyroidotomy. Term requests to be drafted to reflect outcome of discussion.
