Abstract

Airway burns are one of the most frequent causes of hospitalization worldwide, and they generate a series of clinical manifestations in the patient that compromise the general state of the respiratory system and therefore correspond to a high risk of mortality. In recent years orotracheal intubation has been implemented as the main management plan; however, portable nasolaryngofibroscopy has been proposed as a burn assessment tool, which is why its usefulness in various exposed cases is analyzed.

Keywords: Nasolaryngofibroscopy, burn, upper airway, smartphone.
