Abstract

This case report involves the anesthetic management of a rare case of adult epiglottitis. It is unique in that there are real photographs of the illness and a previously undocumented use of a specific airway adjunct in acute epiglottitis, the Bullard laryngoscope. Management of the case from start to finish is discussed, as well as the usefulness of the Bullard laryngoscope in a difficult intubation scenario.
