Abstract

We present the case of a 77-year-old Male with a history of difficult intubation, tracheal stenosis secondary to radiation, severe aortic stenosis, CAD, and squamous cell cancer of head and neck who developed hypoxia and hypotension secondary to a difficult airway during a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). We discuss the management of a difficult airway with a focus on the use of epinephrine in a patient with severe aortic stenosis.
