Because epiglottic downfolding during intubation is rare, anesthesia providers may not be familiar with ways to recognize the issue early, resulting in complications. 

Epiglottic downfolding during intubation is considered a rare occurrence, but it may be underreported. It can happen in various intubation techniques and is more common in children. Early recognition of the issue is crucial, as it can lead to complications if left untreated.   

The anesthesia provider can make promptly detect and appropriately manage epiglottic downfolding, which can help avoid complications and ensure patient safety.  

Learning Outcomes:
  • Identify how to effectively evaluate the airway before, during, and after intubation, ensuring patient safety and minimizing complications. 

  • Describe insights into the early detection of epiglottic downfolding through the vocal cords. 

  • Describe techniques used to restore the epiglottis to its proper position.
