Abstract: To overcome difficulty in airway management for elderly because in elderly due to loss of teeth, mouth will be collapsed and other old age factors. Troublesome intubation is a bad dream for an Anesthesiologist, especially so in an unforeseen difficult airway which will be harmful to the patient as well as Anesthesiologist particularly in rustic arrangement. In the present work we like to design and fabricate an indigenous camera based laryngoscope which is of ease, effectively accessible and reasonable technique for intubation. This video laryngoscope is integrated with the mobile which can be used as a video display device. It will improve the capability of airway management and will be free from many risk factors along with the existing laryngoscope. In the work mechanical model was design with Catia-V5 and the 3D model was imported into Ansys Software for FEM static structural analysis. Along with this a mold flow analysis is carried to obtain better results while fabricating an actual model.
