In this 3-year successive research plan, investigators will conduct a prehospital randomized controlled trial to address the following question: In adult patients with non-traumatic cause of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest resuscitated by emergency medical technician (paramedic level) in the prehospital setting, will receiving endotracheal tube intubation cause a better chance of sustained recovery of spontaneous circulation and other survival outcomes like neurologically favorable status, comparing to those who receiving supraglottic airway device.

The purpose of the study is to compare three supraglottic airway devices (Combitube, Easytube, laryngeal mask airway) to endotracheal intubation in a simulated difficult airway scenario in...
Various supraglottic airways may be used as a dedicated airway for insertion of intubating fibrescope and tracheal intubation in the patients with difficult to manage airways (Difficult Ai...
The investigators plan to conduct a randomized trial comparing the efficacy of intubating the tracheal using an Aintree intubation catheter through either the LMA-S or I-gel supraglottic d...
Tracheal intubation under general anaesthesia is the gold standard for securing the airway and for protecting the lungs against gastric aspiration. The conventional technique involves the ...
Endotracheal intubation is the gold standard for securing the airway. However, while managing patients with difficult airways, various supraglottic devices have been used as rescue airway ...
Supraglottic airway devices commonly are used for securing the airway during general anesthesia. Occasionally, intubation with an endotracheal tube through a supraglottic airway is indicated. Reported...
Airway obstruction on the battlefield is most often due to maxillofacial trauma, which may include bleeding and disrupted airway anatomy. In many of these cases, surgical cricothyrotomy (SC) is the pr...
The role of supraglottic airway devices in emergency airway management is highlighted in international airway management guidelines. We evaluated the application of the new generation laryngeal tube s...
Comparison of the ETView Single Lumen and Macintosh laryngoscopes for endotracheal intubation in an airway manikin with immobilized cervical spine by novice paramedics: A randomized crossover manikin trial.
Management of the airway of a trauma victim is considered challenging. Various approaches have been described to achieve airway control in this setup; many of them include video-assited viewing of the...
Management of airway in patients who have Coffin-Siris syndrome (CSS) is often problematic because most of these patients have difficult airway. NTI via C-MAC VL is an useful alternative to direct lar...
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.
Evaluation, planning, and use of a range of procedures and airway devices for the maintenance or restoration of a patient's ventilation.
A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).
Removal of an endotracheal tube from the patient.
The structural changes in the number, mass, size and/or composition of the airway tissues.
