Ultrasound is gaining increasing popularity among anesthesiologists as it is readily available and provides real-time imaging for various procedures. It is considered as a “visual stethoscope” of the anesthesiologist. After establishing its use in regional blocks and central venous catheter insertion, it is now finding increasing use in anticipation of difficult airway and securing and maintaining it. It has challenged the classical approach of clinical assessment of airway and allows more dynamic bedside assessment. This article attempts to briefly outline the role of ultrasound and its applications for airway management in patients.
