Where do you apply pressure to break laryngospasm?
Mastoid processes
What is the most common cause of obstruction in the airway
Tongue
Name the vasculature of the nose
sphenopalatine artery, superior labial and lateral nasal arteries, anterior and posterior ethmoid arteries, venous plexuses

What is relevant about suspected trauma to the cribiform plate?
It is the bone that separates nasal cavity to brain and if it is fractured, NG will end up in their head.
