How well do you know your blades? This graphic has what you need to know!

The Debrief

  1. Mac and miller blades are introduced in Rose/sniffing position while hyperangulated blades are deployed with the neck in neutral position
  2. Tip of the Mac blade should be placed in the vallecula, while the Miller blade in positioned under (posterior) to the epiglottis 
  3. A “great” view with the hyperangulated blade can lead to difficult tube introduction: “The objects are closer than they appear on the screen!”
