UF scientists discover new explanation for controversial old patient-care technique
Date:10/20/2009

n the process.

"It turns out it doesn't matter," Rice said.

The new findings serve to reassure doctors that the procedure works, and that they don't have to do it "perfectly" for it to be effective.

"Astonishingly enough, our previous assumptions are totally wrong," said professor Scott Springman, M.D., director of ambulatory anesthesia at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. "Now I can explain to my residents more accurately why we're doing it. I will use it in more situations than I would if I still had grave doubts about its efficacy."

Although the study doesn't prove directly that Sellick's maneuver prevents regurgitation, that is reasonably inferred from the images.

"Because of Dr. Rice's study, Sellick's maneuver has again been shown to have anatomic efficacy, despite it occurring in a way that is different from the classic description," Springman said. "It also shows us that previous assumptions are not always correct, and that new technology can help us refine our hypotheses."
