Based on defined selection criteria, the patient will see either a nurse or both a nurse and an anaesthetist. A patient with significant comorbidities will be assigned to an anaesthetist and to receive cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX). If available, CPX assessment has been shown to be a better discriminator than either a shuttle walk test or an activity questionnaire in the identification of high-risk and low-risk patients. Allocation of postoperative care level (ward, high dependency or intensive care) can be based on the results of the patient’s CPX, as these are predictors of postoperative complications [5].

The most likely palpable landmark is the prominent notch on the cranial aspect of the thyroid cartilage. The cricothyroid membrane lies about 20 mm caudad to this point. It lies within 8 mm of the skin. From side to side it is >20 mm across, but there is only a 9 mm wide space between the overlying cricothyroid muscles to either side. The cricothyroid membrane is crossed by a variable number of veins and occasionally arteries, most of which are small. The space between the hyoid bone and the thyroid cartilage is easily mistaken for the cricothyroid membrane.
