Strange scenario. Working at a community hospital, no trauma program. Large level 1 trauma center is about 30 min by ambulance. 25 yo male with a GSW to the jaw is driven in to the ER (ambulances would automatically take them to the city). You are called to the ED to "secure the airway" prior to transfer to trauma center. Pt is a healthy appearing male with a small (9mm if I had to guess) entrance wound through the left anterior jaw. No exit wound. Entire neck is swollen with tracheal deviation to the right. Patient is awake and mentating but very anxious. Opens mouth on command to about 5cm. How would you proceed?
