Table 6. Success Rate of Lightwand Intubation in Relation with Different ΔBL-TMD

Values are the number of the patients, and the values in parentheses refer to the failures of first lightwand attempt.

* Significantly different from the success rates of the ΔBL-TMD between −1.1 and 2.9 cm (P < 0.002).

† Significantly different from the success rates of the ΔBL-TMD between −1.1 and 2.9 cm (P < 0.001) and that of the ΔBL-TMD between 3.0 ∼ 3.9 cm (P < 0.02).

ΔBL-TMD = difference between bent length and patient's thyroid prominence-to-mandibular angle distance.
