Magill forceps is used to maneuver the endotracheal tube ETT in the posterior oropharynx and place its tip into the laryngeal inlet. While the Magill forceps are useful in guiding the nasotracheal tube past the vocal cords, care must be taken to avoid excessive maneuvering in order to minimize the risk of local trauma and rupture of the nasotracheal tube balloon.

Cuff inflation-deflation method can reduce the apnea time in the adult patients. This, in turn, could point to a reduction in the complications (as desaturation and cardiac arrhythmia) that associated with the prolonged-time procedure.
