Blunt laryngeal trauma is an uncommon injury associated with high prehospital mortality. Conventional airway management consists of awake tracheostomy. A case of laryngeal trauma associated with air bag deployment managed with tubeless suspension laryngoscopy with high frequency transglottic jet ventilation is presented. The advantages of this technique in the management of patients who are not good candidates for awake tracheostomy are discussed.
