Abstract

Clinical situations arise in which maintenance of adequate ventilation becomes technically difficult, often either in an emergency setting or perioperatively. The otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon is frequently called upon to provide expertise in airway management. The present article discusses approaches to the patient with a difficult airway. Problems are divided into either acute or elective situations. Algorithmic approaches and specific techniques are reviewed.
