I thought I had this question nailed because I had just read it one day prior to being asked...

What nerve is responsible for laryngospasm? I literally just had read in Miller 6th edition that the nerve that mediates laryngospasm is Superior Laryngeal Nerve. I was told I was wrong - so then I thought they were maybe looking for recurrent laryngeal nerve...again...wrong. The answer? Cricoid nerve!

I have searched and searched and cannot find this nerve anywhere. Is there such a nerve?
