Abstract

Despite advances in equipment for difficult airway management, no individual device or technique has a 100% success rate: every device and technique has known limitations. In recent years, hybrid techniques have been increasingly recognized as important difficult airway management options. Hybrid techniques involve the simultaneous use of at least two different modalities for management of the difficult airway. The goal of these techniques is to take advantage of the best features of each device, while minimizing disadvantages.
