Comparative Effectiveness of Intubating Devices in the Morbidly Obese

2014-08-27 03:14:01 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This prospective, randomized study will compare the effectiveness of 4 different airway intubating devices which are most commonly used.

The four different devices are as follows: McGrath video laryngoscope, GlideScope video laryngoscope, Video-Mac video laryngoscope, and Macintosh size 4 direct laryngoscope.

Hypothesis: the use of a video laryngoscope will improve the glottic view compared to direct laryngoscopy, and secondarily, use of the video laryngoscope will reduce the time required to achieve successful tracheal intubation in patients undergoing bariatric surgery. (Weight loss surgery). The three types of video laryngoscopy devices include; the Verethon GlideScope, LMA McGrath and Karl-Storz Video-Mac.
