Abstract

Airway management becomes a challenging task in subglottic stenosis due to noncompliant stricture. Location and extent of stricture also pose difficulty in securing front of neck access.  management with use of available resources provides immediate lifesaving solution for anticipated or unanticipated life threatening conditions especially causing airway compromise.
