Laryngoscope Prototype Tested Against the Traditional Macintosh Blade

2014-07-23 21:35:18 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The primary objective is to evaluate a knewly developed blade (for intubating patients about to undergo surgery) and compare it to the traditional Macintosh blade

Description

Intubation of patiens can be difficult, even impossible. It can result in different complications as damage to the teeth, lacerations of the mucosa, bleeding, fractures/luxations, hypoxia, hypercapnia, reflex bradycardia and in worst case braindamage and death.

The more difficult the intubation is the more frequent complicationrate. We believe to have developed a laryngoscopeblade that hopefully eases the intubationproces and thereby reduces the complicationrisk.

The patients included in this study is patients who are undergoing elective surgery requering intubation.

Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.

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.

An intravenous anesthetic that has been used for rapid induction of anesthesia and for maintenance of anesthesia of short duration. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p918)

Procedure in which patients are induced into an unconscious state through use of various medications so that they do not feel pain during surgery.
