Dear airway enthusiasts,
This month’s article is a recently published paper in Lancet about video laryngoscopy in small infants.
In this multicenter, randomised controlled trial, the primary outcome was the proportion of patients with successful orotracheal intubation on the first attempt. Secondary outcomes were number of intubation attempts; time to successful orotracheal intubation; proportion of unsuccessful intubations with the randomly assigned device; and proportion of non-severe and severe complications.
A nice comparison of video laryngoscopy and direct laryngoscopy in routine, non-emergency intubations under ideal conditions.
Have fun reading the full text in: https://www.eamshq.net
