When intubating with a bougie device when should the endotracheal tube be loaded onto the Bougie?

Bougie-assisted Endotracheal Intubation when used to confirm endotracheal placement the bougie is passed down the endotracheal tube and there should be ‘hold up’ at 30-40cm depth, if this does not occur the bougie is likely to be in the esophagus.

Is a stylet the same as a bougie?

In respect to the last comment, the stylet is no different to the bougie, where you are intubating blind. The technique I’ve always taught is to place the tube in, in such a way, that you are intubating for below upwards, giving you a direct view. My take on all this is that you use what you are used to.
