The difficult paediatric airway: a new method of intubation using the laryngeal mask airway, Cook airway exchange catheter and tracheal intubation fibrescope



The difficult paediatric airway: a new method of intubation using the laryngeal mask airway, Cook airway exchange catheter and tracheal intubation fibrescope



Paediatric Anaesthesia 11(5): 618-621



We describe a new technique of intubation for use in difficult paediatric airway cases utilizing the laryngeal mask airway, a Cook Airway Exchange Catheter and a paediatric intubation fibrescope. This method has a number of potential advantages over previously described methods.
