Video laryngoscopes are the latest addition in an anaesthesiologist’s armamentarium. They are comparable to fiberoptic bronchoscope in terms of ease of visualization of vocal cords especially in awake intubation and in those with difficult airway. They have an added advantage of having an easier learning curve than fiberoptic bronchoscope guided intubation. There are several studies where video-laryngoscopes have been used in manikins and normal patients for intubation in both supine and lateral position successfully. Of these C-Mac D-Blade laryngoscope has an added advantage of having a blade like Macintosh with camera at the tip which gives good results. In our case report we describe an emergent scenario of successful awake nasal intubation in lateral position using C-Mac D-blade laryngoscope in a patient with documented difficult intubation.
