Body weight is categorized as\90, 90–110 or[110 kg [28, 49]. Tse et al.  found that a head extension angle B80° to predict DI had a Se of 8 % and a PPV of 21 %. Thus it cannot be used as a reliable test in the prediction of DI. However if there is no limitation in head extension, there would be no intubation difficulty meaning that the test has high Sp and NPV thus providing reassurance that negative results indicate truly easy endotracheal intubation. The test described by Bellhouse and Dore  estimates the angle traversed by the occlusal surface of the maxillary teeth when the occipito-atlanto-axial (OAA) complex is fully extended.
Lewis et al.  recommend that the Mallampati test be performed with the patient in the sitting position, the head fully extended, the tongue protruded with phonation. Khan et al.  concluded that the Mallampati test in the supine position without phonation had better compatibility in predicting difficult mask ventilation. 5 %. They had included grade 2 in the CLG system in the DI. 8 %. Yamamoto et al. 8 %. 5 % for Se and Sp respectively. Cattano et al.  demonstrated a good correlation between the Mallampati scale and the CLG system, although the Mallampati scale lacked the sensitivity to be a good predictor when used alone.
