Glottic impersonation – beware out there!

  1. George Kovacs says “video laryngoscopy, direct laryngoscopy, or even bag-mask ventilation, can distort the esophageal opening (E) causing the esophagus to “impersonate” the glottic (G)”
    The answer is: epiglottoscopy before and capnography after to confirm glottic view and tracheal intubation.
