Indirect laryngoscopy with Airtraq resulted in grade I C-L views. Oxygen saturation was maintained above 95%. All the patients were successfully intubated with the Airtraq at first attempt.
In this case series the Airtraq Laryngoscope proved to be an effective intubation device and can be considered as a valid option in an anticipated difficult airway situation (2). For the patients it was safe and comfortable to use the Airtraq while they were awake and breathing spontaneously.
