The purpose of this prospective open labeled randomized study was to compare the "laryngoscopic glottis view" as well as "ease of intubation" between the two blades in routine intubations in non-difficult airways.
One hundred and fifty patients with predicted non difficult airway were randomly assigned into two groups. After induction of anaesthesia laryngoscopy was performed with respective blades and trachea intubated. Parameters monitored were: glottis view obtained during laryngoscopy (Cormack Lehane grade), ease of intubation, intubation attempts, total duration of laryngoscopy in seconds and encountered complications.

Miller blades are commonly used in pediatric anesthesia; however, there is less evidence-based information on the superiority of Miller blades in the visualization of the laryngeal inlet t...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the Video Laryngoscope (VL) is a useful instrument in patients at risk for difficult intubation. We will compare this device to the traditional...
It is essential that anaesthetists successfully perform orotracheal intubation in scenarios in which intubation is potentially more difficult, such as where anatomical characteristics pred...
Airway management and tracheal intubation are routinely performed in paediatric anaesthesia and yet are associated with preventable adverse events. The D-blade of videolaryngoscope is pref...
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, ...
The C-MAC laryngoscope (C-MAC) is a videolaryngoscope that uses a modified Macintosh blade. Although several anecdotal reports exist, it remains unclear whether the C-MAC is superior to the Macintosh ...
Direct laryngoscopy using a Macintosh laryngoscope is the most widely used approach; however, this skill is not easy for novices and trainees. We evaluated the performance of novices using a laryngosc...
First-pass success rates during intubation of infants in the emergency department have been shown to be low. Video laryngoscopy is being increasingly used during advanced airway management in the emer...
Predicting difficult intubation is of high clinical interest.
An increasing number of surgical procedures are performed in the ambulatory setting, leading to improved patient comfort and cost-effectiveness. Patients with suspected or known difficult airways repr...
