The intubation of patients with ludwig's angina remains a difficult problem. Awake fibreoptic endotracheal intubation is the recommended approach but it requires extensive skill, experience, specialised equipment. We report a case of successful awake intubation in ludwig's angina using VIVIDTRAC VT-A 100 videolaryngoscope (an alternative to fibrescopy).

Abstract


The intubation of patients with ludwig's angina remains a difficult problem. Awake fibreoptic endotracheal intubation is the recommended approach but it requires extensive skill, experience, specialised equipment. We report a case of successful awake intubation in ludwig's angina using VIVIDTRAC VT-A 100 videolaryngoscope (an alternative to fibrescopy).
