This further reduces effective ventilation and increases the risk of regurgitation and aspiration.

In such circumstances the patient needs to be turned onto their side, the trolley tipped head down and the airway cleared with suction. In contrast to cricoid pressure, pressure on the thyroid cartilage by a trained assistant can facilitate endotracheal intubation.
