At this level, moving the transducer slightly caudad to the level of the thyroid cartilage allows imaging of the larynx at the level of the vocal cords with demonstration of the thyroid and cricoid cartilages, vocal ligaments, and the anterior commissure; and (d) at the level of the thyroid isthmus and suprasternal notch where the posterior air/ mucosa interface can be identified (Fig.
Canadian C-spine rule versus the NEXUS low-risk criteria in patients with trauma. New England Journal of Medicine 2003; 349:2510-8 are high risk factors that mandate radiographic studies. Low risk criteria such as a simple rearend motor vehicle collision, ability to sit or ambulate in the ER, absence of immediate but not delayed neck pain, or absence of midline C-spine tenderness permit safe assessment of range of motion as the next evaluation step. Finally, the patient’s ability to rotate the neck actively 45 in each direction allows clearing the C-spine without radiographic evaluation (Fig.
6) . These findings have important implications for the anesthesiologist in that C-spine injury can be ruled out reliably by clinical criteria. However, though with a very small likelihood, 28 patients cleared clinically, especially with NEXUS criteria, may still harbor an unstable injury and could potentially develop neurologic damage during airway management, thus active evaluation and C-spine protection during intubation are generally necessary in all cases. For those who cannot be cleared clinically and thus require radiographic evaluation, it is now clear that the diagnostic capability of three-view plain films (the previous standard) is inferior to helical (spiral) CT scans with sagittal and coronal reconstruction.
