Sample text

The tracheal rings immediately below the cricoid cartilage are palpated. Although the space between the 2nd and 3rd tracheal ring is usually chosen for percutaneous tracheostomy, that between the 1st and 2nd, or 3rd and 4th, is acceptable. Local anaesthetic, which may contain epinephrine in low concentration, is injected if necessary. A 1-cm incision is made over the trachea and a needle mounted on a syringe is passed through the tracheal wall between the cartilaginous rings. Aspiration of air confirms correct tracheal placement, and a wire is then passed through the needle into the trachea.

The 5th and 6th costal cartilages. The lower border of the lung has an excursion of as much as 5–8 cm in the extremes of respiration, but in the neutral position (midway between inspiration and expiration), it lies along a line which crosses the 6th rib in the mid-clavicular line, and the 8th rib in the mid-axillary line, and which reaches the 10th rib adjacent to the vertebral column posteriorly. The lung lobes (see Figs 44 & 45) Each lung is divided by a deep oblique fissure, and the right lung is further divided by a transverse fissure.

73a). It is not surprising that the left recurrent nerve, whose intrathoracic course brings it into relationship with many additional structures, should be paralysed twice as often as the right. Some 25% of all recurrent nerve palsies, it should be noted, are idiopathic; they probably result from a peripheral neuritis. Damage to the recurrent laryngeal nerve results in paralysis of the corresponding cord, which lies motionless, near the midline and at a lower level than the opposite sideathe last being due to the downward drag of the paralysed muscles.
