Can one size fit all? Posttraumatic intracerebral pneumatocele after ventilation with a mask: Dissection is then carried bluntly through the mylohyoid and along the inner mandibular cortex; subperiosteal versus extraperiosteal dissection is debated. In some patients preoxygenation is unfeasible due to the maxillofacial trauma itself, and hypoxemia is to be expected. If possible, having the patient sitting will result in less tongue base prolapse and, consequently, better visualization of the larynx. Furthermore, an injured airway may prevent efficient air transfer from the mask to the lungs.
