Table 4 Ventilatory score and fiberoptic laryngeal score in several positions.

VariableControl group (n=27)Lightwand group (n=27)P value
Ventilatory score (0/1/2/3)0.285
 Extension1/7/9/9* 4/4/6/12*
FLS (I/II/III/IV)0.045
 Re-neutral6/10/4/6* 2/8/7/9*
Values are presented as median (interquartile range) or mean±SD or numbers. Control group – standard digital manipulation method group; Lightwand group – lightwand guided method group; FLS – fiberoptic laryngeal score; Optimal position – fiberoptic laryngeal score III and IV; Suboptimal position – fiberoptic laryngeal score I and II.
* Significant different compared to neutral position;
** significant different compared to Control group.
