Abstract

The air-Q intubating laryngeal airway (ILA) is a new supraglottic airway device which may overcome some limitations inherent to the classic laryngeal mask airway for tracheal intubation. We present a case series of patients with anticipated difficult airway in whom the air-Q ILA was successfully used as a conduit for fiberoptic intubation.
