Decrease of the nociceptive stimulation induced by laryngoscopy could be an advantage for patients without risk of difficult intubation. The present study aimed to compare the difference in nociceptive stimulation between the use of a conventional laryngoscope or of a videolaryngoscope. Amount of nociception was assessed indirectly using the peak remifentanil concentration determined by a closed-loop administration of propofol and remifentanil with bispectral index (BIS) as the input signal (target 50).

In patients with predictive features associated with easy direct laryngoscopy, videolaryngoscoy with the GlideScope has been shown to require less force when compared with Macintosh direct laryngoscop...
Repetitive activation of non-nociceptive afferents is known to attenuate nociceptive signaling. However, the functional details of how this modulatory process operates are not understood and this has ...
transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive method of brain stimulation suggested as a therapeutic tool for pain, and is related to reversal of maladaptive plasticity associated w...
Recently studies have aimed at developing transcutaneous spinal direct current stimulation (tsDCS) as a non-invasive technique to modulate spinal function in humans. Independent studies evaluating its...
Direct laryngoscopy using a Macintosh laryngoscope is the most widely used approach; however, this skill is not easy for novices and trainees. We evaluated the performance of novices using a laryngosc...
A randomized controlled prospective study of laryngoscopy and intubation success comparing direct laryngoscopy and the McGrath® Mac videolaryngoscope.
Our goal is to compare conventional direct laryngoscopy using a Macintosh blade with the McGrath videolaryngoscope for endotracheal intubation in very morbidly obese patients undergoing no...
During endotracheal intubation, it is known that la laryngoscopy has significant effects, such as tachycardia and blood pressure increase, which may be harmful, especially in those with ca...
The MILAR trial is a multicenter randomised , prospective, controlled, single-blind, superiority French clinical trial, with a 1: 1 distribution of patients to compare intubation during th...
