For this reason, patients with inflated tracheostomy tubes (especially highpressure cuffs) may have difficulty in swallowing. During oesophagoscopy with a rigid oesophagoscope, an over-inflated tracheal tube cuff may be mistaken for an oesophageal obstruction. Because the trachea is a superficial structure in the neck, it is possible to feel the bulge caused by the rapid injection of 5 ml of air into the cuff of an accurately placed tracheal tube. This is detected by placing two fingers over the trachea above the suprasternal notch.

Cricothyrotomy is relatively easy to perform and should (in theory at least) be associated with minimal blood loss, as the cricothyroid membrane is thought to be largely avascular (Fig. 25). The muscles of the larynx The muscles of the larynx can be divided into the extrinsic group, which attach the larynx to its neighbours, and the intrinsic group, which are responsible for moving the cartilages of the larynx one against the other. The extrinsic muscles of the larynx are the sternothyroid, thyrohyoid and the inferior constrictor of the pharynx.

Some fibres of this muscle continue in the aryepiglottic fold to the margin of the epiglottis, forming the thyroepiglottic muscle, which assists in the sphincter mechanism of the laryngeal inlet. 5 The vocalis is simply some muscle fibres of the deep aspect of the thyroarytenoid that are inserted into the vocal fold. It may function as an adjusting mechanism to the tension of the cord. 6 The cricothyroid, the only intrinsic laryngeal muscle which lies outside the cartilaginous framework, arises from the anterior part of the outer aspect of the arch of the cricoid cartilage.
