Management of neonatal airway is difficult due to its anatomical and physiological changes. The presence of intraoral pathology causes anticipated difficult intubation during the management of infant and children airway. Bleeding, difficult in visualizing the airway, and enlarged upper respiratory structures make airway management challenging for anesthesiologist.
