The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether tracheal intubation with the CMAC device decreases the time required for intubation as compared to intubation with the fiberoptic bronchoscope in patients with an unstable cervical spine. Both the CMAC device and the fiberoptic bronchoscope are currently commonly used in standard of care practices in the intubation of patients with cervical spine injury.

Acquisition of knowledge and skills pertinent to the use of fibreoptic endoscopy is an important part of training in various medical and surgical specialties such as anesthesiology, emerge...
This study investigate the utility of continuous oxygen insufflation during fiberoptic bronchoscope-guided intubation. One group receives oxygen via suction channel of fiberoptic bronchos...
The fiberoptic bronchoscope (FOB) has been the preferred instrument for many years in the management of difficult tracheal intubation, and it is considered as a gold standard. The disposco...

The purpose of this study is to compare the yield of two methods for obtaining a lung tissue sample: Procedure #1: standard fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FB) with fluoroscopy, and Procedure #2:...
This study compared the efficacy and efficiency of virtual reality simulation (VRS) with high-fidelity mannequin in the simulation-based training of fiberoptic bronchoscope manipulation in novices.
Iniencephaly is a severe developmental abnormality of the craniovertebral junction in which the head is retroflexed dramatically. Anatomic studies have identified striking changes in the vertebrae and...
The ability of cervical vertebrae (CV) staging to contribute in forensic age estimation is being discussed controversially. The large variability of CV geometries in the end stage of development might...
The prevalence of cervical block vertebrae is unknown. Furthermore, there is no consensus on the cause of adjacent segment degeneration (ASD) after cervical fusion.
Objectives The objective of this study was to define safe corridors for the optimal placement of bicortical implants in the feline cervical spine (C2-T1) using CT. Methods CT images of feline cervical...
