Abstract

A 3-year old previously healthy boy riding a tricycle on the sidewalk falls over the handlebar when the tricycle hits a pothole. He sustains an anterior neck injury and presents to the emergency room with stridor, aphonia, and a puffy neck. The ORL surgeons want to bring him to the OR urgently. He had eaten 2 h previously (full meal). Admission vital signs: BP 120/85, HR 130, RR 45/min, Hematocrit 35.
