Difficult intubation

If a difficult intubation is predicted, it should not be attempted by an inexperienced operator.

If a difficult intubation presents unexpectedly, the use of a stylet, a straight bladed laryngoscope or a fibreoptic laryngoscope may help. It is important not to persist for too long; revert to bag and mask ventilation to ensure adequate oxygenation.
