Q: What is the good positioning of the operator while intubating a patient?

Answer: As the operator stands behind the patient's head, the patient's head should be around at the level of the operator's lower sternum. For ideal view, the operator should keep his or her back straight all the time and should resist any attempt  to  hunch over the patient. If required, any bending should occur in the knees of the operator.
