An interesting clinical anecdote! How did you avoid barotrauma in
this child (as you're aware, one of the listed "contraindications"
to needle cric is complete upper airway obstruction)? Did you place
a second cric needle as a relief port (recommended by some,
but I wonder about its efficacy), or did you get the grape pushed
down soon enough to avoid this problem?
