Following informed consent, patients will be randomly assigned to oral fiberoptic intubation or to oral intubation using the GlideScope Video Laryngoscope. Following the induction of general anesthesia a sealed envelope would be opened to reveal the technique to be used. A stop watch will be started at the beginning of the procedure. At the completion of intubation the stop watch will be stopped and the time recorded along with other data. Based on a sample size estimation process, it is the investigators plan to study fifty patients. The two techniques will be compared in terms of the average time needed to place the endotracheal tube and studied using a two-sided T-Test with a significance level of 0.05. To ensure comparability between the two methods, all intubators will be required to have at experienced at least 10 uses of the GlideScope and 10 uses with fiberoptic intubation.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether the McGrath® MAC video laryngoscope is equal or superior when compared to the Glidescope® Ranger and the Macintosh laryngoscope for novic...
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...
Using a combination of the video-laryngoscope with the disposable fiber-optic bronchoscope (aScope III) is a feasible way to facilitate successful intubation in a timely manner, in patient...
Comparison of ease and convenience of nasotracheal intubation with the use of the two indirect laryngoscopes, Airtraq or Glidescope, versus the traditionally used Macintosh laryngoscope.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the Video Laryngoscope (VL) is a useful instrument in patients at risk for difficult intubation. We will compare this device to the traditional...
GlideScope video laryngoscope (GS) has been widely used to facilitate tracheal intubation in adults and pediatric patients because it can improve glottic view. Several investigations performed in pedi...
The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical effectiveness of rocuronium in low doses on conditions during rapid tracheal intubation using video laryngoscope.
Successful intubation is challenging in patients with bilateral mandibular fractures. The aim of this study was to compare the video laryngoscope (VL) with the Macintosh laryngoscope (ML) for intubat...
The C-MAC laryngoscope (C-MAC) is a videolaryngoscope that uses a modified Macintosh blade. Although several anecdotal reports exist, it remains unclear whether the C-MAC is superior to the Macintosh ...
The McGrath laryngoscope is a novel self-contained videolaryngoscope with a single-use blade. There are several anecdotal reports that the McGrath is superior to the Macintosh laryngoscope for trachea...

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
A form of interactive entertainment in which the player controls electronically generated images that appear on a video display screen. This includes video games played in the home on special machines or home computers, and those played in arcades. (McGraw Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed, v19, p223)
Endoscopic surgery of the pleural cavity performed with visualization via video transmission.
The storing or preserving of video signals for television to be played back later via a transmitter or receiver. Recordings may be made on magnetic tape or discs (VIDEODISC RECORDING).
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
