A pioneering anaesthesia technique, known as STRIVE Hi, was detailed in the British Journal of Anaesthesia after some Australian doctors successfully used it in a surgery for a patient with obstructed airways.

For a patient with an infected epiglottis who was in danger of having his airway blocked by rapid swelling, the team combined two relatively new techniques. The team supplemented the traditional approach by adding high-flow nasal oxygen supply, previously used in intensive care and respiratory units. Through this combination they were able to manage anaesthesia for patients with very challenging airway narrowing.

This technique makes it possible to achieve improvements in oxygen levels while patients are in deep anaesthesia.
