  Airway management is the most important duty of an anesthetist, so more attention should be paid on different educational approaches in tackling difficult airway. Having problems in airway control leads to terrible consequences such as hypoxia and aspiration. Intubation with fiberoptic is a useful method for a safe airway management.

  When neck movement is not possible due to cervical spine injury or when direct laryngoscopy and vocal cord vision is not possible, awake oral or nasal fiberoptic intubation or under general anesthesia is very useful. This study’s aim is to introduce a useful scopic device for intubation.
