A scenario-oriented approach to the problem of difficult intubation in pregnant patients leads to the recognition of the unpredicted difficult or failed intubation as the main concern. The appropriate means to cope with this rare but life-threatening complication lies in a gradual employment of principles beginning with preferential application of regional anaesthesia techniques, followed by proceeding according to locally adapted simple and comprehensive failed intubation algorithms, design of a suitable difficult airway cart that contains only a few but well chosen items and by implementation of a continuous and mandatory training program to which all personnel are subjected to participate in regular intervals.
