Management of the difficult paediatric airway is described in this chapter. Airway assessment and a structured approach to planning for the anticipated difficult airway are the essence of the chapter. This includes a plan for induction of anaesthesia, a plan for laryngoscopy and intubation, and a plan for safe extubation. Detailed, step-by-step guides describing the techniques for intubation using a flexible bronchoscope, Macintosh-style video laryngoscope, and rigid optical stylet are provided. The conditions commonly associated with the difficult paediatric airway are classified according to the mechanism by which they cause difficulty.
