Catanzaro,Italy: Adult man, large burned and in a coma, is initially rescued through placement of the laryngeal mask (LMA). The patient, who was transferred by the ambulance at hub hospital, underwent an emergency tracheostomy. This made it possible to better manage the airways during the subsequent transfer of a helicopter ambulances to the available large burns centers. This is the first regionally documented case of a patient undergoing rapid tracheostomy with a view to an imminent heliambulance transfer.
