Evaluation of the Single Use Flexible Optical Scope Versus Multiple Use Flexible Optical Scopes for Intubation
The study is in two parts
Part one of the study describes the use of the new single-use flexible video-scope for intubation of patients with predicted normal airways.
Part two compares the performance of the single-use flexible video-scope with that of a conventional flexible video-scope for awake intubation of patients with predicted difficult airways.
The hypothesis is that the new single-use flexible video-scope for intubation performs as well as the traditional scope.

They include filamentous hemagglutinin; FIMBRIAE PROTEINS; pertactin; PERTUSSIS TOXIN; ADENYLATE CYCLASE TOXIN; dermonecrotic toxin; tracheal cytotoxin; Bordetella LIPOPOLYSACCHARIDES; and tracheal colonization factor.
60 patients, in three group of 20 patients each, scheduled for surgery needing general anesthesia will be researched. Group A: tracheal intubation of single lumen tube using laryngoscope....
Various supraglottic airways may be used as a dedicated airway for insertion of intubating fibrescope and tracheal intubation in the patients with difficult to manage airways (Difficult Ai...
Purpose: This study is designed to assess the impact of teaching tracheal intubation using video-guided feedback on the ability to perform and maintain this clinical skill by medical stud...
The use of the video laryngoscope to teach laryngoscopy will improve the performance of tracheal intubation done by novices because it will allow a shared view of the airway leading to a b...
The study aim is to compare a balanced anesthesia of the medicines used in all other age groups with the routine premedication in use for premature's with regards to the success in the int...
Summary Fibreoptic intubation is the gold standard for patients with predicted difficult intubation. The Ambu((R)) aScope is a single-use device for fibreoptic tracheal intubation. We assessed its per...
Obstructive fibrinous tracheal pseudomembrane is a rare, but potentially fatal complication associated with endotracheal intubation. It has been known that the formation of tracheal pseudomembrane is...
BACKGROUND: Macintosh laryngoscopic intubation is a lifesaving procedure, but a difficult skill to learn. The Airtraq optical laryngoscope (AOL) is a novel intubation device with advantages over the d...
BACKGROUND: Many extraglottic airway devices allow the direct passage of an adult-sized tracheal tube, but this is not possible with the LMA-Supreme(TM) . We evaluated the feasibility of using the LMA...
Several studies have identified difficult airway management including a difficult tracheal intubation of patients undergoing general anaesthesia as a major cause of anaesthesia-related morbidity and m...
