Comparison Between a Standard Tube and the Ultra-thin Tritube for Intubation of the Trachea and for Maintaining Access to the Trachea After Anaesthesia, in Patients With an Expected Difficult Direct Laryngoscopy

2018-09-05 23:45:10 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators compare the ease of intubation between a new ultra-thin endotracheal tube, "Tritube", and a standard endotracheal tube in patients with predictors of difficult laryngoscopy. Furthermore the investigators compare the acceptance of leaving the Tritube in trachea after end of anaesthesia, with the use of a tube exchange catheter.

Description

In patients scheduled for surgery and anaesthesia in the Head-/neck/ear/nose/throat -region the investigators compare the ease of tracheal intubation between a new ultra-thin endotracheal tube, "Tritube", and a standard endotracheal tube in patients with predictors of difficult laryngoscopy. The intubation is performed with an angulated video laryngoscope.

Furthermore the investigators compare the acceptance of leaving the Tritube in trachea after end of anaesthesia, with the use of a tube exchange catheter. The latter continues into the post-operative recovery-ward.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.

A tube of ectodermal tissue in an embryo that will give rise to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, including the SPINAL CORD and the BRAIN. Lumen within the neural tube is called neural canal which gives rise to the central canal of the spinal cord and the ventricles of the brain. For malformation of the neural tube, see NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS.
