Figure 1: Summary of laryngeal view on fiberoptic bronchoscopy and success of intubation. Brimacombe grading scale to assess the grade of view is as follows: 4 = only vocal cords seen; 3 = vocal cords plus posterior epiglottis seen; 2 = vocal cords plus anterior epiglottis seen; 1 = vocal cords not seen, but function adequate; 0 = failure to function where vocal cords not seen fibre-optically
