At the same time, the tensor palati opens the ostium of the Eustachian tube. The oropharyngeal isthmus is blocked by contraction of palatoglossus on each side, which narrows the space between the anterior faucal pillars: the residual gap is closed by the dorsum of the tongue wedging into it. The protection of the larynx is a complex affair, brought about not only by closure of the sphincter mechanism of the larynx but also by tucking the larynx behind the overhanging mass of the tongue and by utilizing the epiglottis to guide the bolus away from the laryngeal entrance.

Gravity has little effect on the transit of the bolus, which occurs just as rapidly in the lying as in the erect position. It is, of course, quite easy to swallow fluid or solids while standing on one’s head, a well-known party trick; here oesophageal transit is inevitably an active muscular process. The airway during anaesthesia It is commonly perceived that when a patient is anaesthetized in the supine position, the airway readily becomes obstructed as a result of the muscles of the jaw becoming relaxed and the tongue falling back to obstruct the oropharynx (Fig.

The incision in the membrane can be enlarged by placing the handle of the scalpel into the hole and rotating the scalpel. A small tracheal tube or tracheostomy tube can then be passed through the incision, allowing ventilation of the lungs. Cricothyrotomy is relatively easy to perform and should (in theory at least) be associated with minimal blood loss, as the cricothyroid membrane is thought to be largely avascular (Fig. 25). 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.
