In patients with an unstable cervical spine, maintenance of cervical immobilization during tracheal intubation is important. In McGrath videolaryngoscopic intubation, lifting of the blade to raise the epiglottis is needed to visualize the glottis, but in patients with an unstable cervical spine, this can cause cervical spine movement. By contrast, the Optiscope, a rigid video-stylet, does not require raising of the epiglottis during tracheal intubation. We therefore hypothesized that the Optiscope would produce less cervical spine movement than the McGrath videolaryngoscope during tracheal intubation. The aim of this study was to compare the Optiscope with the McGrath videolaryngoscope with respect to cervical spine motion during intubation in patients with simulated cervical immobilization.

Airway management in the presence of acute cervical spine injury (CSI) is challenging. Because it limits cervical spine motion during tracheal intubation and allows for neurological examination after ...
Hypoxemia is a common complication during tracheal intubation of critically ill adults and is a frequently used endpoint in airway management research. Identifying patients likely to experience low ox...
This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of two different spinal immobilization techniques on cervical spine movement in a simulated prehospital ground transport setting.
Tracheal bronchus is an ectopic bronchus almost arising from the right side of the tracheal wall above the carina. The incidence of a tracheal bronchus is reported as 0.1 to 3%. We experienced a patie...
Unstable conditions of the craniocervical junction such as atlanto-occipital dislocation (AOD) or atlanto-axial instability (AAI) are severe injuries with a high risk of tetraplegia or death. Immobili...
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.
Tracheal intubation is more difficult in patients in whom cervical spine immobilisation is maintained during tracheal intubation. The McGrath Series 5 videolaryngoscope offers a potential ...
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...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether tracheal intubation with the CMAC device decreases the time required for intubation as compared to intubation with the fiberoptic bronchosc...
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)
A calcification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of the spinal column, usually at the level of the cervical spine. It is often associated with anterior ankylosing hyperostosis.
A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
The replacement of intervertebral discs in the spinal column with artificial devices. The procedure is done in the lumbar or cervical spine to relieve severe pain resulting from INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DEGENERATION.
