Bibliometrics or citation analysis, the statistical analysis of written publications, is an increasingly popular approach for the assessment of scientific activity. Using databases, a search of published manuscripts on the difficult airway from January, 1981 to December, 2013 was conducted. 2,412 articles were identified and analyzed as a group to assess the indicators of productivity, collaboration, and impact over this time period. There has been an increase in the productivity over the study period, with 37 manuscripts published between 1981 and 1990, and 1,268 between 2001 and 2010 (P <.001). The number of scientific papers on difficult airway was higher than that of anesthesiology research in general.
