To assure smooth passage of the endotracheal tube over the CAEC, the tip of the tube was maintained in a bevel-down position (i.e., with the Murphy eye up).
The development of endotracheal tubes over the years has aimed at enhancing their function and minimising the complications of their use.
Endotracheal intubation procedural skill is basically performed throughout the world by healthcare professionals and is relatively safe and is among the most effective procedures.
