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.
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.

The goal of this prospective randomized study is to compare the effect of nasal tip lifting during nasotracheal intubation. The question the investigators are trying to answer is: If the ...
Positioning during the process of tracheal intubation is critical, as optimal positioning can greatly facilitate successful intubation. Many complications can occur as a result of failed i...
OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine the sensitivity and specificity of various anatomic measurements alone or in combination in predicting difficult intubation. The investigators hypo...
Tracheal intubation, particularly before surgery, is traditionally done in supine position. It was shown in the general population and in obese patients in particular, that the pre-oxygena...
The usefulness of videolaryngoscope has been verified by several studies, and the frequency of videolaryngoscopy is increasing in clinical practice. Data on the use of 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...
In the armamentarium of an anesthesiologist, videolaryngoscopy is a valuable addition to secure the airway. However, when the videolaryngoscope (VLS) offers no solution, few options remain. Earlier, w...
Endotracheal intubation in lateral position in infants is a challenge. This difficulty may be surmounted to some extent by using videolaryngoscopes but the routine use of these devices as a tool to se...
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.
Intubation is a frequently performed procedure in emergency medicine that is associated with significant morbidity and mortality when unrecognized esophageal intubation occurs. However, it may be diff...
A congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of CARTILAGE in the BRONCHI. This results in a floppy bronchial wall making patency difficult to maintain. It is characterized by wheezing and difficult breathing.
