Abstract: in obese patients despite increased neck circumference and limited mouth opening, the Airtraq™ laryngoscope affords faster tracheal intubation than the Macintosh laryngoscope, and it may serve as an alternative when conventional laryngoscopy fails.

“…[11,24,25] VL improves the glottic view with its video component and blade features, providing a wide-angle view and thereby reducing risk factors for a difficult EI. [9][10][11][12]24] In the current study, higher BMI was not found to be a risk factor for a difficult EI with a VL. It was demonstrated that IID <3.5 cm, SMD <12.5 cm, and TMD <6 cm are predictive values for difficult EI.…”

“…Medicine ® OPEN predictors of difficult airways for the VL technique are still uncertain. [11,12] Therefore, in this study, we investigated the correlation between airway assessment tests, anthropometric measurements, and the Modified Cormack-Lehane Classification (MCLC) in class III obese patients, assessed by C-MAC-D-blade VL. Moreover, we aimed to evaluate the predictive accuracy of the preoperative airway assessment tests and anthropometric measurements on the risk of difficult EI.…”

“…On the contrary, various studies have shown that AVL reduces intubation time for experienced as well as novice intubators. [ 1 7 8 9 10 ] Decamps et al . [ 11 ] also reported high pass success rates with channelled VLs but the study was done in simulation mannikins in contrary to patients.…”

“…Postoperative airway symptoms like any oral trauma, dental trauma, or hoarseness in voice were more prominent in patients on whom intubation was done with ML, as reported by Ranieri et al . [ 10 ] also. This difference can be attributed to the less manipulations required during the intubation with AVL as the shape of laryngoscope blade was more aligned to the oro-pharyngeal axis.…”
