Epiglottitis

PulmCrit (EMCrit)
IBCC chapter & cast - July 2, 2020 - By Josh Farkas 

"Epiglottitis is often a game of chicken. The great majority of adult patients don't require intubation, so the best management for them is steroid and antibiotic (plus close observation and the ability to intubate if necessary). For these patients, intubation isn't protective – it's dangerous. However, some patients do truly require intubation – which can often be difficult and require cricothyrotomy."
