The Effect of Different Videolaryngoscopes on Intubation Success in Difficult Airway Patients

2018-01-30 13:26:15 | BioPortfolio


Mallampati score > 3 generally indicate difficult airway and difficult intubation. Most anesthesiologist usually use this score system to predict difficult airway management. Different laryngoscopes may be useful in management of difficult airway. This study designed to compare different videolaryngoscopes in intubation success in patient of Mallampati score>3.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Techniques for administering artificial respiration without the need for INTRATRACHEAL INTUBATION.

A procedure involving placement of a tube into the trachea through the mouth or nose in order to provide a patient with oxygen and anesthesia.

The insertion of a tube into the stomach, intestines, or other portion of the gastrointestinal tract to allow for the passage of food products, etc.

Introduction of a tube into a hollow organ to restore or maintain patency if obstructed. It is differentiated from CATHETERIZATION in that the insertion of a catheter is usually performed for the introducing or withdrawing of fluids from the body.

Use or insertion of a tubular device into a duct, blood vessel, hollow organ, or body cavity for injecting or withdrawing fluids for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. It differs from INTUBATION in that the tube here is used to restore or maintain patency in obstructions.
