Tracheal intubation during cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a high-risk procedure. The aim of this study was to compare efficacy of intubation with the Pentax AWS, Airtraq, and McCoy laryngoscopes in patients with cervical spine immobilization during resuscitation in a randomized, controlled simulation trial.

Cervical Spine Movement During Awake Orotracheal Intubation With Fiberoptic Scope and McGrath Videolaryngoscope in Patients Undergoing Surgery for Cervical Spine Instability: A Randomized Control Trial.
Cervical spine movement during intubation with direct laryngoscopy can predispose to new-onset neurological deficits in patients with cervical spine instability. While fiberoptic-guided intubation (FG...
Intubating Laryngeal Mask Airway-assisted Flexible Bronchoscopic Intubation is Associated With Reduced Cervical Spine Motion When Compared With C-MAC Video Laryngoscopy-guided Intubation: A Prospective Randomized Cross Over Trial.
In the evolving research into cervical spine mechanics during airway intervention, new devices are being constantly added to the armamentarium of anesthesiologists. In this study we compared cervical ...
The practice of prehospital immobilization is coming under increasing scrutiny. Unravelling the historical sequence of prehospital immobilization might shed more light on this matter and help resolve ...
We describe our 3-year experience with endotracheal intubation (ETI) outcomes during a multidisciplinary emergency department (ED)-based quality improvement (QI) program.
The aim of this study was to measure the movement of the cervical spine in healthy volunteers and patients with cervical spondylosis (CS) and describe the actual motion of the cervical spine using a t...
The aim of the study is to compare the effect of the C-MAC videolaryngoscope intubation technique vs. the conventional direct laryngoscope intubation technique on the cervical spine motion...
In patients with suspected cervical spine injury, cervical immobilization, such as manual in-line stabilization or cervical collar has been adopted to prevent further neurologic injury due...
It is essential that anaesthetists successfully perform orotracheal intubation in scenarios in which intubation is potentially more difficult, such as where the neck is immobilized. The A...
In patients with cervical spine disorders or hernia, in-line stabilization and immobilization during tracheal intubation is used to avoid neck injury. With direct laryngoscopy cranio-cervi...
In this study, we are going to compare cervical spine motion during tracheal intubation using video laryngoscope or rigid video stylet in patients with simulated cervical immobilization.
A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
Removal of an endotracheal tube from the patient.
A procedure involving placement of a tube into the trachea through the mouth or nose in order to provide a patient with oxygen and anesthesia.
Treatment of some morbid condition by producing a reflex action, as in the household treatment of nosebleed by a piece of ice applied to the cervical spine. (Stedman, 27th ed)
A developmental deformity of the occipital bone and upper end of the cervical spine, in which the latter appears to have pushed the floor of the occipital bone upward. (Dorland, 27th ed)
