Spanish term or phrase: al tomar una baja graduación del ángulo
Destacan dos ángulos: el ángulo α’, formado por la línea que une el hueso hioides al cartílago tiroides y la que une éste último con el cartílago aritenoides (esta segunda línea correspondería a la localización de las cuerdas vocales); y el ángulo β’, entre las líneas que unen el hueso hioides a la base y a la punta de la epiglotis.

[1} {2]Son llamativos sus resultados en los 100 pacientes evaluados: obtienen un 100% de sensibilidad, especificidad y PPV en la predicción de VAD al tomar una baja graduación del ángulo.
Los autores, a partir del ángulo β’, sugieren una forma sencilla de valorar la facilidad de intubación, denomidado triángulo EHE’ o triángulo de seguridad, cuyos vértices son el hueso hioides, la base de la epiglotis y la punta de la epiglotis.
