"Neutral Position" and "Sniffing Position" for Orotracheal Intubation With "Trachway" Intubating Stylet in Adults

2015-10-20 13:53:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to investigate two different patient's head and neck positions(neutral position and sniffing position) for the effectiveness of orotracheal intubation with using the "Clarus Video System (Trachway®)" intubating stylet.

Description

Placing the patient's head and neck in an proper position before laryngoscopy or intubation is a very important maneuver for facilitating a successful intubation. Recently, the video optical intubating stylet is developed as an alternative device for tracheal intubation which is preloaded with a tracheal tube and allows to view the tube advancement by the video monitor. Since the approach of glottic view and the field of view with the video intubating stylet is different from a direct laryngoscopy, the optimal patient's head and neck position for intubating stylet may also be different. The purpose of this study is to investigate two different patient's head and neck positions(neutral position and sniffing position) for the effectiveness of orotracheal intubation with using the "Clarus Video System (Trachway®)" intubating stylet.
