Ultrasound-guided bilateral superior laryngeal nerve block to aid awake endotracheal intubation in a patient with cervical spine disease for emergency surgery.

Abstract

Ultrasound has been widely used to locate nerves for various nerve blocks. The potential advantages of using ultrasound imaging for nerve blocks include reduction in the amount of local anaesthetic required, improved success rate, reduced time to perform the block and reduced complication rate. We describe the successful performance of ultrasound-guided… (More)
