Difficult airway in the paediatric population poses a serious obstacle for tracheal intubation leading to grave consequences. Direct laryngoscopy may often not yield an ideal view for intubation, and the aid of supraglottic airway device, videolaryngoscope (VLS) and/or fibreoptic devices may be sought. We discuss the benefit of using C-MAC® VLS-guided technique for difficult intubation in a child. We also suggest that videolaryngoscopy be considered a standard approach in paediatric intubations where such facilities are available.
