- Other: Nasotracheal Intubation
side of nostril and size of endotracheal tube estimation for nasotracheal intubation will be done based on radiological imaging ( CT/MRI head)Other Name: Malinckrodt flexometallic tube
- Successful nasal intubation by selecting the correct size of nasotracheal tube estimated by measuring the diameter of nasal cavity in coronal section just below the inferior turbinate in radiological images. [ Time Frame: After enrolment of the patient and before intubation ]The diameter of both nasal cavities in coronal section of CT/MRI will be calculated at the level just below the inferior turbinate in anterior nasal cavity when inferior turbinates just appeared in the radiological image, than at level of maxillary sinus and just before cohanal opening in radiological images. Minimal diameter will be used to estimate the size of nasotracheal tube before intubation.The images will also be used to select the side of nasal intubation after ruling out any nasal pathology like DNS, Spurs and marked turbinate hypretrophy.
- To find the complications associated with nasal intubations that were performed after assessing the radiological images. [ Time Frame: At the time of intubation ]The radiological images will be studied prior to intubation, the appropriate size of the nasotracheal tube will be selected and after ruling out any nasal pathology like DNS , spurs, concha bullosa side of nasal intubation will be decided.
