A 28 year old with reduced GCS after several seizures requires intubation. Their neck extension seems limited and you wonder whether this may be a difficult intubation. You decide to monitor it with ultrasound.
Post-intubation hypoxia can be rapidly fatal without early intervention, which requires a structured approach to concurrently identifying and treating the underlying cause
