Hypothesis: The grade of view of the glottis as determined by the modified Cormack and Lehane grading system in anesthetized patients will improve by performing a jaw thrust maneuver during video laryngoscopy with compared with video laryngoscopy alone. Similarly, the grade of the view during cricoid pressure will also improve with a jaw thrust maneuver.
