In brief: Depends on situation
Intubation by an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist is always done with careful preparation: suction equipment, a laryngoscope, different sizes of breathing tubes.
Sometimes a fiberoptic scope or other advanced airway equipment is necessary. Anesthesia training prepares the team to assess the patient's airway and have all the proper equipment necessary for safe care.
