Abstract: 

Snoring is claimed to be a predictive factor for difficult intubations. This study was designed and executed to assess the relationship between the two variables, snoring and difficult intubations.
In a randomized double-blind prospective study, 120 cases were selected from the target population, and distributed randomly into two groups. These patients underwent elective surgery and were in the age range of 18 to 60 years. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were defined. Mallampati class and Cormack Lehane grading were used to define and predict difficult intubations. Student-t test and chi-square tests were used for statistical analysis. A p.value of less than 0.05 was considered significant.
The two groups had no statistically significant difference regarding ground variables. There was also, no difference regarding Mallampati class. Cormack and Lehane grading scores were higher in the group who had a positive history of snoring.
It seems that there is a statistically significant relationship between Cormack grades and the possibility of difficult intubation. However, it is suggested that another study should be done to assess the positive predictive value of this variable for difficult intubation.
