Comparison of Three Laryngoscope Blades for Orotracheal Intubation in the Operating Room

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


The purpose of this study is to determinate if there is a difference in performance provided by three laryngoscope blades: plastic single use, metallic single use and metallic reusable blades.


Primary outcome: success of intubation at the first attempt

Secondary outcomes: quality of laryngeal exposition (Cormack and Lehanne modify grade), duration to success intubation, Intubation difficult Scale and result of intubation procedure

Study Design

Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label
