Difficult orotracheal intubation (OTI) represents the main cause of anaesthetic morbidity and mortality. A third of all anaesthesia-related deaths are secondary to the inability to maintain a clear airway to guarantee a correct oxygenation, and nearly two-thirds of problems related to the management of the airway occur during anaesthetic induction.

Keywords: Airway management, Difficult airway, Fiberoptic Bronchoscopy, Intubation, Intratracheal, Laryngoscopy, Macintosh, Oxygenation, Predictors, Videolaryngoscope.
