This is a randomized controlled pilot study investigating a new intubation method in newborn infants. In contrast to the conventional intubation method, in the new method the respirator is connected to the tube prior to insertion into the mouth (oral intubation) or into the nose (nasopharyngeal intubation). As a result, an oxygen flow is already administered via the tube during the intubation process. Heart rate, arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) and cerebral tissue oxygenation (using near-infrared spectroscopy) are recorded in both the study and control groups during intubation.
- The new intubation method is safe
- The new intubation method leads to a reduction in the number of intubation attempts
- The new intubation method leads to a reduction of desaturations and bradycardia during intubation
- In the long term, it could lead to a reduction in morbidity and mortality

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...
There are two routes in which a fiberoptic intubation can be performed - oral and nasal. In general, nasal intubation by any conventional method may be the preferred choice for certain pro...
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 difficult airway remains an ongoing concern in daily anesthesia practice, with awake intubation being an important component of its management. Classically, fiberoptic bronchoscope-assisted trache...
Studies in the non-emergency department (ED) settings have reported the relationships of post-intubation hypertension with poor patient outcomes. While ED-based studies have examined post-intubation h...
An airway manager's primary objective is to provide a path to oxygenation. This can be achieved by means of a facemask, a supraglottic airway, or a tracheal tube. If one method fails, an alternative a...
Nasotracheal intubation is rarely performed in the emergency department (ED) but may be required in specific situations such as angioedema. Both blind and flexible nasal intubation (FNI) may be utiliz...
The conventional endonasal intubation would not allow precise intra-operative assessment of the changes to the nasolabial soft tissue complex. Submental intubation allows accurate measurement of nasol...
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.
