FULL TEXT  


Tracheal extubation can be potentially catastrophic, especially in patients with difficult airways. This article describes a case where planned extubation in a patient with a large tongue lesion led to complete airway obstruction and subsequent cardiac arrest. Reintubation was facilitated using a laryngeal mask airway and an Aintree intubation catheter.
