Description

A transverse still image of the upper airway using the high frequency, linear transducer at the level just cephalad of the vocal cords and arytenoids. Asymmetry is identified with a hyperechoic fullness of the left side of the airway (right side of the image). This was immediately confirmed as subglottic edema at the level just cephalad of the vocal cords by indirect fiberoptic laryngoscopy.
