The right prevertebral extent of the disease was causing compression of right laryngeal inlet
Archie Brain, a British anaesthesiologist, for the first time introduced the laryngeal mask airway in 1983, designed to be positioned around the laryngeal inlet
that could overcome the complications associated with endotracheal intubation, and yet be simple and atraumatic to insert.
The masks help in providing excellent ventilation without going through the normal visualization and intubation process of the laryngeal inlet
Laryngeal FBs can be separated into two categories: large, conforming items that obstruct the laryngeal inlet
causing immediate respiratory distress, and sharp, thin, aerodynamic FBs causing partial obstruction.
Indirect laryngoscopy and video endoscopy performed with a rigid endoscope indicated that the epiglottis was slightly lowered to the laryngeal inlet
Laryngoscopy identified bulging of the posterior pharyngeal wall that partially occluded the laryngeal inlet
When a foreign body reaches the laryngeal inlet
it triggers a cough reflex just by touching the laryngeal mucosa.
F Full when the whole of the laryngeal inlet
Direct laryngoscopy revealed an extensive oedematous supraglottis with severe necrosis involving the laryngeal inlet
, base of the tongue and right tonsillar bed.
The Intubaid fits within most endotracheal tubes and laryngeal masks to provide video-assisted visualization of the laryngeal inlet
The epiglottis, one of the nine cartilaginous structures that comprise the larynx, serves to protect the laryngeal inlet
by folding over the glottis during swallowing.
Archie Brain, a British anaesthesiologist, for the first time introduced the laryngeal mask airway in 1983, which is a supraglottic airway device with an inflatable cuff forming a low pressure seal around the laryngeal inlet
and permitting ventilation.
