In conclusion, there is no single best approach to the difficult airway, but it is important to acquire skill sets and experience with a number of available tools in order to tailor an optimal approach to each individual patient. I believe that the articles published in this special issue will improve our knowledge in several aspects of clinical airway management. I sincerely hope that it will facilitate further research in this very important area of practice to reduce morbidity and mortality related to airway management.
