In brief: That would
probably be an emergency forced intubation.
An intubation for general anesthesia will involve a muscle relaxant and a nerve stimulator after a dose of Propofol that that is effective immediately

In brief: Not yet ready
The patient is usually asleep before attempt of intubation.
Sometimes however the medication has not been given time to take effect fully ( every pt reacts differently). But this can be quickly addressed by the anesthesia provider.
