Update item information
Title Awake Fiberoptic Intubation for a Patient with Ludwig's Angina
Creator Kelsey Bissell
Subject Ludwig's angina; difficult airway; awake intubation; deep neck infection; fiberoptic intubation; MSNA
Description Although contemporary dental care and antibiotic use have decreased the number of patients with Ludwig's angina (LA) since it was identified in 1836, it continues to pose a significant airway risk to patients and can challenge anesthesia practitioners.1 Due to the potentially fatal complications associated with LA, it is important for the anesthesia practitioner to recognize the diagnosis, develop an appropriate plan, and prepare accordingly to provide the safest anesthetic possible.1
