Abstract

Fibreoptic intubation was first described as a technique in 1967. It may be performed awake or asleep, and can be used for airway management of a patient at risk of aspiration with a known or predicted difficult airway. This article describes the variety of methods available for awake and asleep fibreoptic intubation, as well as techniques for anesthetizing the airway. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
