Jude raised the question of the present status of cricothyroid membrane puncture with a 16-gauge needle. Safar cited dog studies in which many 16-gauge needles were necessary to obtain adequate gas exchange during spontaneous breathing of air. Even the largest bore needle which can be inserted through the skin would not give sufficient lumen for an adult to spontaneously breathe enough air to sustain life. A needle in the adult, however, can be used effectively for intermittent insufflation of oxygen under high pressure.
