Nasopharyngeal airway is the most ideal and acceptable device for insertion into the nasal pathway and is mainly used for maintaining the upper airway in an anaesthetized and unconscious patient. Fiberoptic or videobronchoscope is the most recognized and accepted instrument to secure and facilitate Endotracheal intubation whenever there is a difficulty in securing the airway. It is usually introduced through the nose in most of the situations and occasionally through mouth by few people who favour it. We highlight the use of a nasopharyngeal airway device and the measures that go along with it in improving the quality of a fiberoptic/videobronchoscopic intubation.
