rapid sequence induction

Rapid sequence induction of anesthesia with cricoid pressure Anesthesiology A maneuver in which anesthesia is rapidly induced by thiopental, then succinylcholine, at the same time that a scrub nurse, anesthesia assistant or other applies manual pressure over the cricoid cartilage at the level of the C6 vertebra, which closes the esophagus until a cuffed endotracheal tube is established in the Pt's airway. See Gastric aspiration.
