Abstract

The difficult airway is the single most important cause of anaesthesia-related morbidity and mortality and most catastrophes are due to unexpected difficulty, which are more likely in emergencies. We report a difficult airway scenario in a patient with a high energetic trauma and used several techniques for the "can't intubate, can't ventilate scenario". Eventually, successful intubation was obtained with the video-assisted laryngoscope.
