Provide a brief summary here.
Suspension Laryngoscopy is used to access the pharynx, larynx, trachea, or bronchioles for various procedures (eg. microscopic surgery, tissue biopsies, removal of vocal cord polyps, dilation of tracheal stenosis).
The patient is induced under GA. The patient's teeth are protected while a rigid laryngoscope is inserted into the patient's mouth and larynx. Ventilation from this point forward is typically via Jet Ventilation. The laryngoscope is suspended in place for the duration of the procedure.
