The accurate assessment of the airway is one of the most important skills an anesthesia practitioner should perfect. A difficult intubation is often defined as a Cormack Lehane (CL) grade of III or IV in adult patients. The reported frequency of difficult intubation or CL grade III and IV is 12.35% and 9% in those undergoing a general anesthetic.1 Several assessments and scoring systems are used by anesthesia providers with the goal of identifying a potentially difficult intubation.
