The McGrath VL results in a clear picture of the nearby airway anatomy and vocal cords on a liquid crystal display screen mounted on the handle.6 In 2633 general anesthesia cases, the incidence of failed intubation was one in 1300, and the incidence of difficult intubation was 4.7%, which is at the lower end of the recorded range of 1.3 to 16.3% in obstetric patients.7 Despite emerging evidence that VLs enhance the glottic view and improve intubation success rate, few studies have considered the function of this device, especially when used in obstetric patients.5 The primary objective of this study was to test the glottic visualization provided by the Macintosh direct laryngoscope (DL) and McGrath VL and the time taken to intubate patients undergoing cesarean section.

Mean times to intubate were 20.8 23 s when the ETT cuff was inflated in the pharynx and 60.1 56 s when using fibreoptic laryngoscopy (p < 0.01) and they concluded that both ETT cuff inflation in the pharynx and fibreoptic bronchoscopy are valuable for nasotracheal intubation in patients with an immobilised cervical spine and that ETT cuff inflation can be used as an alternative to fibreoptic bronchoscopy in patients with CSI.
