Yogita Patil, Abhilasha Motghare, Nirav Kotak, RD Patel

The airway management in facial trauma is very crucial and difficult. The personnel dealing with airway should be aware and wellversed with all the available modalaties and techniques of handling the airway as requirement may differ from patient to patient. Among the various techniques available for intubating maxillofacial trauma we present the RDs modified submental technique of intubation which has been used in our institute and have been helpful for surgical procedure with minimal complications. We studied 15 patients using this technique and found it easy, simple to perform with advantages like minimal apnea time, uninterrupted surgical procedure and secure airway. Among the 15 patients studied nine had right sided submental intubation and six had left sided submental intubation. There were no complications seen with this procedure.
