ABSTRACT
The most important role of an anaesthetist in the conduct of general anaesthesia is endotracheal intubation and confirmation of its correct placement. Failure of this can happen and it mostly occurs due to misplacement; endobronchial intubations; disconnection; leaks; and obstruction either in the tube or in the circuit.
