Sample text

This technique is currently accepted as the standard technique for longer term airway management in many ICUs. 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. In addition, a few fibres of stylopharyngeus and palatopharyngeus reach forwards to the posterior border of the thyroid cartilage.

It is this vein which is the cause of occasional unpleasant venous bleeding after tonsillectomy. 5 cm away from the tonsillar capsule, and is out of harm’s way during tonsillectomy (Fig. 14). Lymph drainage is to the upper deep cervical nodes, particularly to the jugulo-digastric node (or tonsillar node) at the point where the common facial vein joins the internal jugular vein. There is a threefold sensory nerve supply: 1 the glossopharyngeal nerve via the pharyngeal plexus; 2 the posterior palatine branch of the maxillary nerve; 3 twigs from the lingual branch of the mandibular nerve.

The effect of this is to tilt the lamina of the cricoid, bearing with it the arytenoid, posteriorly, thus lengthening the anteroposterior diameter of the glottis and thus, in turn, putting the vocal cords on stretch (Fig. 30). This muscle is the only tensor of the cord. The actions of the intrinsic laryngeal muscles can be summarized thus: 1 2 3 4 abductors of the cords: posterior cricoarytenoids; adductors of the cords: lateral cricoarytenoids, interarytenoid; sphincters to vestibule: aryepiglottics, thyro-epiglottics; regulators of cord tension: cricothyroids (tensors), thyroarytenoids (relaxors), vocales (fine adjustment).
