I hope you are healthy and happy in this odd, new and unusual world.
In my department, I work as a pediatric anesthetist at Hacettepe University Hospital, we keep taking urgent and of course emergency cases during this period by taking safety measures. Video laryngoscopes as a most significant step of these safety measures, gained very much importance .
Videolaryngoscopes are useful in tracheal intubation in adults and in children, but it is not clear whether or not there are differences in efficacies between the different types of video laryngoscopes in children.
I have read the following two articles, one is editorial, interestedly. Although derived from retrospective analysis, these findings of Peyton and colleagues'make a useful contribution to our understanding of device performance across paediatric patients.
1. Peyton J, Park R, Staffa SJ, et al; PeDI Collaborative Investigators. A comparison of videolaryngoscopy using standard blades or non-standard blades in children in the Paediatric Difficult Intubation Registry.
2. Norris A, Armstrong J. Comparative videolaryngoscope performance in children: data from the Pediatric Difficult Intubation Registry.
Wish you healthy days,
