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

The airway management is a vital act in anesthesia, but it's not always easy. The gold standard technique for planned very difficult intubation is nasotracheal fiberoptic intubation. The s...
The 50% effective concentration of remifentanil by target controlled infusion was not determined for inhibiting the haemodynamic response during double-lumen tube (DLT) intubation. Previou...
Intubation is frequently required for trauma patients as part of the resuscitative effort. When the stability of the cervical spine is unknown, the potential for spinal cord damage during ...
Airtraq sp has been proven effective for intubating patients presenting with difficult airway. The Airtraq sp allows visualisation of the tracheal inlet only for the intubator. By ...
Along with the technological advances in medicine, videolaryngoscope is the most commonly preferred technique for intubation of expected difficult airway management such as morbidly obese ...
In patients with an unstable cervical spine, maintenance of cervical immobilization during tracheal intubation is important. In McGrath videolaryngoscopic intubation, lifting of the blade to raise the...
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 ...
It is very rare but challenging to perform emergency airway management for accidental extubation in a patient whose head and neck are fixed in the prone position when urgently turning the patient to t...
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.
