This highlights the importance to the laryngoscopist of knowing the expected landmarks of the laryngeal inlet: the posterior cartilages, aryepiglottic folds and overlying epiglottis flank the glottic opening, and not the esophagus! Airway Axes In the standard anatomic (military) position, the axis of the oral cavity sits at close to right angles to the axes of the pharynx and trachea. To obtain direct visualization during laryngoscopy, this angle needs to be increased to 180°. The pharyngeal and tracheal axes can be aligned by flexion of the lower cervical spine at the cervicothoracic junction, while alignment The trachea extends from the inferior border of the cricoid cartilage to the level of the sixth thoracic vertebra, where it splits into the left and right mainstem bronchus.
NPAs, also known as “nasal trumpets”, are made from soft material such as latex or silicon, have a hollow interior, beveled leading edge, and a proximal flange to abut the patient’s nostril (Fig. 4–8). 41 SIZING Adult NPAs are generally sized by their internal diameter (ID) in mm. Typical adult sizes for small, medium, and large NPAs are 6, 7, and 8 mm ID, respectively. One commonly used (but nonvalidated) sizing method is to use an NPA of a length corresponding to the distance from nose tip to the tragus of the ear.
