Effectiveness of Video System in Improving Learning of Tracheal Intubation Using Standard Laryngoscopy Among Novices

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio


The use of the video laryngoscope to teach laryngoscopy will improve the performance of tracheal intubation done by novices because it will allow a shared view of the airway leading to a better feedback from the trainer to the trainee.

Role of Airtraq Mobile to Improve Intubation Conditions With Airtraq

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 ...

Learning and Retention of Tracheal Intubation by Medical Students: Comparison of Standard Intubation Teaching Against Video-guided Intubation Teaching.

Purpose: This study is designed to assess the impact of teaching tracheal intubation using video-guided feedback on the ability to perform and maintain this clinical skill by medical stud...

Intubation of a Pediatric Manikin in Difficult Airway by Novice Personnel: A Comparison of Glidescope and Airtraq

Background and aims: Glidescope and Airtraq were designed to facilitate intubation and to improve teaching intubation. The investigators want to find their efficacy in normal airway, tongu...

Comparison of AirTraq Laryngoscope to Macintosh Laryngoscope for Intubation of Patients With Potential Cervical Spine Injury

Comparison of color flow with standard ultrasound for the detection of endotracheal intubation.

Intubation is a frequently performed procedure in emergency medicine that is associated with significant morbidity and mortality when unrecognized esophageal intubation occurs. However, it may be diff...

Endotracheal Intubation and In-Hospital Mortality after Intracerebral Hemorrhage.

Many patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhages (ICHs) undergo endotracheal intubation with subsequent mechanical ventilation (MV) for "airway protection" with the intent to prevent aspiration, pne...

Macintosh Blade Videolaryngoscopy Combined With Rigid Bonfils Intubation Endoscope Offers a Suitable Alternative for Patients With Difficult Airways.

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...

Comparison of intubation conditions with CMAC Miller videolaryngoscope and conventional Miller laryngoscope in lateral position in infants: A prospective randomized trial.

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...

Surgical Treatment Outcomes of Vocal Process Granuloma After Endotracheal Intubation.

The objective of this study was to review the clinical characteristics and surgical treatment outcomes of the vocal process granuloma after the endotracheal intubation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.

Systematic discussions and teaching relating to patient care.

Instructional materials used in teaching.

Removal of an endotracheal tube from the patient.

Procedure in which an anesthetic such as a gas or mixture of gases is inhaled through a tube into the lungs.
