The purpose of the pilot study is to compare new laryngoscopes for infants by assessing the equipment best suited to assist the intubation, with the best overview, shortest time to intubation and use these numbers to make a sample size calculation for the full protocol. The investigators hypothesis is that the Storz videolaryngoscope® has a better success rate than infants (<2 years). The patients will be optimally anaesthetized with neuromuscular blockade for the intubation. All patient will be evaluated with af Macintosh blade laryngoscope, with an Airtraq® or a Storz videolaryngoscope®, and finally intubated with the other one of the later, which the patient was randomized to.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment

bmı > 35 morbidly obese patients requiring endotracheal intubation enrolled in this trial. Divided into two groups Airtraq and ILMA. their effectiveness is evaluated.
Endotracheal intubation in lateral position in infants is a challenge. This difficulty may be surmounted to some extent by using videolaryngoscopes but the routine use of these devices as a tool to se...
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...
In the armamentarium of an anesthesiologist, videolaryngoscopy is a valuable addition to secure the airway. However, when the videolaryngoscope (VLS) offers no solution, few options remain. Earlier, w...
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.
