Comparative Effectiveness of Intubating Devices in the Morbidly Obese
This prospective, randomized study will compare the effectiveness of 4 different airway intubating devices which are most commonly used.
The four different devices are as follows: McGrath video laryngoscope, GlideScope video laryngoscope, Video-Mac video laryngoscope, and Macintosh size 4 direct laryngoscope.
Hypothesis: the use of a video laryngoscope will improve the glottic view compared to direct laryngoscopy, and secondarily, use of the video laryngoscope will reduce the time required to achieve successful tracheal intubation in patients undergoing bariatric surgery. (Weight loss surgery). The three types of video laryngoscopy devices include; the Verethon GlideScope, LMA McGrath and Karl-Storz Video-Mac.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject)

Used with articles which include video files or clips, or for articles which are entirely video.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
A form of interactive entertainment in which the player controls electronically generated images that appear on a video display screen. This includes video games played in the home on special machines or home computers, and those played in arcades. (McGraw Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed, v19, p223)
A condition of having excess fat in the abdomen. Abdominal obesity is typically defined as waist circumferences of 40 inches or more in men and 35 inches or more in women. Abdominal obesity raises the risk of developing disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension and METABOLIC SYNDROME X.

Endoscopic surgery of the pleural cavity performed with visualization via video transmission.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two novel videolaryngoscope systems, the Glidescope and the Truview PCD against standard direct laryngoscopy (DL) in pediatric...
The purpose of this study is to examine whether orotracheal intubation in morbidly obese patients is faster, gentler and safer using the GlideScope videolaryngoscope than with the Macintos...
Video laryngoscopy has been shown to improve intubation success in adults and children; However, there is little published regarding the use of video laryngoscopes in infants. The Glidesc...
Patients undergoing surgery or intensive care management often require a tube to be inserted into the trachea allowing lung ventilation. Usually a laryngoscope is used to allow visualisat...
Comparison of ease and convenience of nasotracheal intubation with the use of the two indirect laryngoscopes, Airtraq or Glidescope, versus the traditionally used Macintosh laryngoscope.
INTRODUCTION: The Glidescope(®) video-laryngoscopy appears to provide better glottic visualization than direct laryngoscopy. However, it remains unclear if it translates into in...
BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown that video laryngoscopy enhances laryngeal view in patients with apparently normal and difficult airways. The utility of the novel, portable, battery-powered C-...
The development of less expensive, smaller, and more reliable video cameras has revolutionized the design of laryngoscopes and the process of endotracheal intubation. The term video laryngoscopy defin...
PURPOSE: Airtraq use by inexperienced personnel has been evaluated in simulator studies, but little is known about the learning process in real patients. This prospective study was designed to compare...
