Air-Q™ Intubating Laryngeal Airway is an extraglottic airway device used as a primary airway tool or as an adjunct to tracheal intubation. The bougie is a simple flexible device that might increase the success rate of endotracheal intubation either blindly or through a supraglottic device. We hypothesized that using bougie guided intubation through air-Q™ can improve the success rate with minimal complications.
