Abstract

Fibreoptic bronchoscopic guided tracheal intubation is often the first choice for clinicians familiar with the technique, when faced with a patient in whom tracheal intubation presents known or possible difficulties. Regardless of the technique chosen, anticipated and unanticipated problems may arise. We report three patients with known difficult airways that illustrate the utility of light wand guided oral and nasotracheal intubation when tracheal intubation with fibreoptic bronchoscopy proved impossible.
