Abstract: Rigid indirect video laryngoscopes were designed to aid glottis visualisation in difficult airway. The McGrath® MAC video laryngoscope was designed similarly for routine use. The unique design of the blade makes it easy to use in patients with limited mouth opening and facilitates tracheal intubation without use of stylet. It is compact and easy to assemble with preparation time less than one minute making it a reasonable choice in cases of unanticipated difficult intubations. This case series demonstrates its successful use as a rescue device in patients with difficult intubation. One of the patient was intubated awake with the help of McGrath® MAC video laryngoscope thus making it an attractive alternate for fibre optic bronchoscopy assisted tracheal intubation.
