One of the greatest challenge to the anaesthesiologists is management of child with difficult airway. Sometimes serious anaesthetic accidents have occurred due to mismanagement of airway. Management of even normal airway in a neonate is different and complex as compared to airway of two year old child and that of adult. Airway manage­ment of neonates and babies with difficult and compromised airway is being discussed.
