|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Orthosis||Device: Miami cervical collar||Not Applicable|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||181 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||The patients are randomized into one of the two group: the collar group or the non-collar group before anesthetic induction. In the collar group, the patient was put on a Miami cervical collar and then anesthetic induction and nasotracheal intubation are performed. the non-collar group receive the same anesthetic care without a collar as a control.|
|Masking:||Single (Outcomes Assessor)|
|Masking Description:||The anesthetic induction and nasotracheal induction are performed by one anesthesiologist. Another anesthesiology calculated the intubation time according to the video recording.|

Experimental: Collar group
Standard of anesthetic care and nasointubation with patient wearing the Miami cervical collar.
Device: Miami cervical collar
Collar group is put on the Miami cervical collar.
No Intervention: Non-collar group
Standard of anesthetic care and nasointubation with patient not wearing the Miami cervical collar.
- Nasointubation Time [ Time Frame: Intraoperative ]intubation time assisted by Glidescope
- subjective scoring of ease of intubation [ Time Frame: Intraoperative ]ease of intubation scored with visual analogue scale
- magill forceps for nasointubation [ Time Frame: Intraoperative ]whether magill forcepts is required to facilitate nasointubation
