    Airway obstruction

    Although I’ve got 4 years of experience of nursing in PCU, I am really new to the world of PACU. While on my own, I had removed a pillow under a pts head that was coming in because they had an oral airway and I didn’t see the fog in their mask, so I assumed they were obstructing. Anesthesiologist was wondering why I removed the pillow when they had an airway in. Is it possible to still obstruct your airway with any type of airway in? Or did I just not notice his/her breathe coming through the mask? I know airway is the biggest thing and I want to make sure I do a good job. Any other pacu tips are welcomed as well.
