Video Laryngoscopy

Vinuta V Patil, Bala H Subramanya, N Kiranchand, S Bala Bhaskar, Srinivasalu Dammur
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: C-MAC(®) video laryngoscope (VL) with Macintosh blade has been found to improve Cormack-Lehane (C-L) laryngoscopic view as well as intubating conditions for orotracheal intubation. However, studies done on the performance of C-MAC(®) VL for nasotracheal intubation (NTI) are very few in number. Hence, we compared laryngoscopy and intubating conditions between Macintosh direct laryngoscope and C-MAC(®) VL for NTI. METHODS: Sixty American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Status I, II patients, aged 8-18 years, posted for tonsillectomy surgeries under general anaesthesia with NTI were randomised, into two groups...

The purpose of this investigation was to investigate the association between first attempt success and intubation-related complications in the Intensive Care Unit after the widespread adoption of video laryngoscopy. We further sought to characterize and identify the predictors of complications that occur despite first attempt success. This was a prospective observational study of consecutive intubations performed with video laryngoscopy at an academic medical Intensive Care Unit. Operator, procedural, and complication data were collected...

: Neonates and small infants with craniofacial malformation may be very difficult or impossible to mask ventilate or intubate. We would like to report the fiberoptic intubation of a small infant with Treacher Collins Syndrome using the technique described by Ellis et al. CASE REPORT: An one month-old infant with Treacher Collins Syndrome was scheduled for mandibular surgery under general endotracheal anesthesia. Direct laryngoscopy for oral intubation failed to reveal the glottis...

BACKGROUND: Intubation in rural emergency departments (EDs) is a high-risk procedure, often with little or no specialty support. Rural EDs are utilizing real-time telemedicine links, connecting providers to an ED physician who may provide clinical guidance. INTRODUCTION: We endeavored to describe telemedicine-assisted intubation in rural EDs that are served by an ED telemedicine network. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Prospective data were collected on all patients who had an intubation attempt while on the video telemedicine link from May 1, 2014 to April 30, 2015...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Managing the airway of post burn contracture of the neck has always been challenging to anesthesiologists as it limits the alignment of oro-pharyngo-laryngeal axes because of functional and anatomical deformities that occur as a result of long standing contractures. Here the role of the King Vision video laryngoscope which is the latest in the series of video laryngoscope has been evaluated for such patients. CASE REPORT: A 35 year old male patient with post burn contracture of neck was scheduled for release of the contracture...

OBJECTIVE: The McGrath Video laryngoscope is a newly developed video laryngoscope that significantly improves laryngeal view and facilitates endotracheal intubation in difficult airways. However in patients with normal airway that is not mentioned before. The aim of this study was to compare the McGrath video laryngoscope with the Macintosh laryngoscope in patients with normal airways. METHODS: A total of 100 patients requiring orotracheal intubation, were randomized to either having intubation with the McGrath video laryngoscope or the Macintosh laryngoscope...

INTRODUCTION: The use of videolaryngoscopy continues to play a larger role in the approach to patients with airway pathology. Looking specifically at patients with potential difficulty in ventilation and intubation due to thyroid goiter, video laryngoscopy may provide a faster and easier technique to secure the airway compared to direct laryngoscopy. PRESENTATION OF CASE: In the case we will present to you, a 60-year-old female with a large goiter presented to a community hospital emergency room where she was found to be in respiratory distress with increased work of breathing...

OBJECTIVES: Various medications and devices are available for facilitation of emergent endotracheal intubations (EETIs). The objective of this study was to survey which medications and devices are being utilized for intubation by Canadian physicians. METHODS: A clinical scenario-based survey was developed to determine which medications physicians would administer to facilitate EETI, their first choice of intubation device, and backup strategy should their first choice fail...

OBJECTIVE: To develop an ovine model for teaching suspension laryngoscopy and phonosurgery. METHODS: The head and neck from 10 pre-pubescent sheep were harvested following humane euthanasia at the end of an in vivo protocol. No live animals were used in this study. The tissues were saline-perfused and refrigerated for 1-5 days. Suspension laryngoscopy was performed using adolescent Parsons and adult Kantor-Berci laryngoscopes suspended with a Benjamin-Parsons laryngoscope holder...

BACKGROUND: Different video-laryngoscopes (VDLs) for endotracheal intubation (ETI) have recently been developed. We compared the performance of the VDL Airway Scope (AWS) with the direct laryngoscopy by Macintosh (DLM) for ETI success, time and learning. METHODS: We performed an experimental manikin controlled study. Twenty experienced (experts) and 40 inexperienced operators (novices) for DLM-ETI were enrolled. None of them had experience with the use of AWS-VDL...

DESIGN: Prospective, randomized, clinical trial. SETTING: University hospital operation room. PATIENTS: 104 patients scheduled for elective dental or maxillofacial surgery were randomized to two groups: GlideScope® classic (GSc) and GlideScope® direct (GSd). INTERVENTIONS: We compared the video laryngoscopes GSc and GSd with each other and with direct laryngoscopy (DL) for nasotracheal intubation with regard to visualization of the glottis, intubation success rate, and required time for and ease of intubation...

: Vocal symptoms are frequent in the elderly and are consequences of structural changes in the larynx that occur with aging. OBJECTIVE: to identify the voice alterations in elderly patients attending a voice clinic. METHODS: elderly patients of both genders were divided into two groups: 60-75 and above 76 years. All patients completed a questionnaire with identification data, profession, vocal symptoms, hearing, habits and addictions, and systemic diseases...

In addition to being effective and easy to learn how to use, the ideal laryngoscope should be associated with minimal reduction in skill performance during gaps in practice over time. We compared the time taken to intubate the trachea of a manikin by novice medical students immediately after training, and then after 1 month, with no intervening practice. We designed a two-period, four-group, randomised, cross-over trial to compare the Macintosh, Venner(™) A.P. Advance(™) with difficult airway blade, C-MAC(®) with D-Blade and Airtraq(®) with wireless video-viewer...

BACKGROUND: Nocturnal stridor and respiratory abnormalities are important features of multiple system atrophy (MSA) with relevance to patient survival, and they are detected and evaluated mainly through video-polysomnography (video-PSG). Diurnal laryngoscopy seems to yield abnormal findings only in the presence of significant vocal cord (VC) dysfunction. AIM: To assess whether specific electrophysiological patterns of diurnal EMG of VC muscles may indicate nocturnal stridor or respiratory dysfunctions in MSA patients...

A child's voice disorder may significantly impair his or her ability to be heard and understood. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of voice disorders in primary school students. METHODS AND MATERIALS: In this descriptive-analytical study, a total of 501 fourth through fifth grade primary school students (boys = 51...

OBJECTIVES: Diplophonia is an often misinterpreted symptom of disordered voice, and needs objectification. An audio signal processing algorithm for the detection of diplophonia is proposed. Diplophonia is produced by two distinct oscillators, which yield a profound physiological interpretation. The algorithm's performance is compared with the clinical standard parameter degree of subharmonics (DSH). STUDY DESIGN: This is a prospective study. METHODS: A total of 50 dysphonic subjects with (28 with diplophonia and 22 without diplophonia) and 30 subjects with euphonia were included in the study...
