Videolaryngoscopy in Patients With Cervical Spine Immobilisation

2015-10-01 07:53:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 solution. The relatively short radius of the blade curvature combined with the internal arrangement of optimal components means that the glottis can be seen without the need for alignment of the oral, pharyngeal and tracheal axes.

The investigators propose that the McGrath Series 5 videolaryngoscope will improve the view of the larynx in patients with limited neck movements, making intubation quicker, easier and possibly safer.

Mcgrath Videolaryngoscope Versus Macintosh Laryngoscope in Patients With Manual In-line Stabilization

Video laryngoscopy provides easily a good laryngeal view compared to direct laryngoscopy. It is particularly, useful in patients with anticipated difficult intubation, and also widely used...

Comparison of Three Laryngoscopes in Difficult Laryngoscopy

Tracheal intubation requires alignment of oro-pharyngeal-laryngeal axes. When these three axes are not aligned, intubation becomes difficult. In the researchers' study, the investigators s...

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...

Tracheal Intubation With the Rigid Tube of Laryngoscopy- a New Method

This study evaluates the efficiency of the rigid tube of laryngoscopy for tracheal intubation in patients with presumed difficult airway and compare the classical laryngoscopy and this met...

Videolaryngoscopy vs Direct Laryngoscopy for Intubation in Patients With Diabetes

The use of videolarygoscopy (VL) as first choice for tracheal intubation versus direct laryngoscopy (DL) is a matter of debate. These two methods were compared in several studies. Videolar...

Obesity is a serious disorder and may bring about many difficulties of perioperative management. A systematic review was conducted to assess the association between obesity and difficult intubation.

Comparison of GlideScope Video Laryngoscopy and Direct Laryngoscopy for Tracheal Intubation in Neonates.

GlideScope video laryngoscope (GS) has been widely used to facilitate tracheal intubation in adults and pediatric patients because it can improve glottic view. Several investigations performed in pedi...

Evaluation of two neck ultrasound measurements as predictors of difficult direct laryngoscopy: A prospective study.

Unpredictable difficult laryngoscopy remains a challenge for anaesthesiologists, especially if difficult ventilation occurs during standard laryngoscopy. Accurate airway assessment should always be pe...

A randomised clinical trial comparing the 'sniffing' and neutral position using channelled (KingVision ) and non-channelled (C-MAC ) videolaryngoscopes.

Head and neck position is one of the factors which can be associated with difficult videolaryngoscopy and tracheal intubation. This prospective randomised clinical trial compared 'sniffing' and neutra...

Videolaryngoscopy versus direct laryngoscopy for nasotracheal intubation: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials.

Nasotracheal intubation (NTI) is a common practice in the oral and maxillofacial surgeries. A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to determine whether videolaryngoscopy (VL) compared wit...
