Emergency intubation is called Cricothyrotomy where you make an incision made through the skin and cricothyroid membrane to establish a patent airway during certain life-threatening situations. You have to be careful to get it exactly through the center of the area to avoid slicing the carotid arteries in your patient's neck. Oh, and in emergency situations if you have no intubating tube, you can use the hollow part of a pen to establish emergency airway entry. Is that considered a useless fact or did I accidentally tell you guys something useful? Do NOT attempt unless you are a medic or a doctor.
