    Not to be nick-picky but the cartoon has the medic holding the laryngoscope in the wrong hand. No wonder the medic is feeling o0ut of sorts.

      That could be part of the humor. I have had times when I felt like everything was going bass ackwards.

      But you are being “nick-picky”. Its a cartoon dude. Besides, take a look at the blade. The LED is on the left side instead of the right, so in this case, yes, right handed would work better. Not to be “nick-picky” about your criticizing post though..hahaha

    Intubation is a left handed skill. Cartoon incorrect.
