Abstract: The concept of illness behavior was introduced to indicate
the ways in which given symptoms may be perceived,
evaluated and acted upon at an individual level. Illness behavior may vary greatly according to illness-related, patient-
related and doctor-related variables and their complex
interactions. In the past decades, important lines of
research have been concerned with illness perception, frequent
attendance at medical facilities, health care-seeking
behavior, treatment-seeking behavior, delay in seeking
treatment, and treatment adherence.

Abstract: A difficult airway is defined as a clinical situation in which
a trained anesthesiologist has difficulties to ventilate a patient
with a face mask, difficulties for endotracheal intubation,
or both. Intubation with a double lumen tube (DLT)
may be more difficult than an equivalent intubation with a
single-lumen tracheal tube because of its greater external
diameter, stiffness and concavity, so its use is not recommended
as a technique of initiation in patients with VAD
