Immediately after airway intervention, the mean of IOP in Macintosh laryngoscope (24.41 [+ or -] 6.03 mmHg) group was significantly higher than other groups (p< 0.001).
Intubation time was found significantly different between the groups, being significantly shorter in the MG group (p<0.001) There was no statistically significant difference between the studied laryngoscopes regarding the number of intubation attempts, need for stylet and glottic view according to the Cormack-Lehane scale.
