Facilitated insertion of a nasogastric tube in tracheal intubated patients using the glidescope
Heart rate/blood pressure response and airway morbidity following tracheal intubation with direct laryngoscopy, GlideScope
and Trachlight: a randomised control trial.
Evaluation of ease of intubation with the GlideScope
or Macintosh laryngoscope by anaesthetists in simulated easy and difficult laryngoscopy.
Difficult airway management in the emergency department: Glidescope
videolaryngoscopy compared to direct laryngoscopy.
Traditional laryngoscopy or Glidescope
could not insert to this case to assist nasotracheal intubation due to limited mouth opening (about 1 cm) in this case.
5,6) This resulted in the development of several alternatives to facilitate tracheal intubation; such as intubating laryngeal mask airway (ILMA), lightwand, fiberoptic bronchoscope (fiberscope), and video/optical laryngoscopes (such as Airtraq, Glidescope
, retromolar scope, bullard laryngoscope etc).
The SonoSite and GlideScope
corporations allowed me to hand-carry S30,000 ultrasound and intubating equipment with me to Iraq, and both machines saved lives on several occasions.
video laryngoscopes (gained through its $10 million acquisition of Saturn Biomedical Systems in 2006) provide a real-time view of a patient's airway and help doctors with endotracheal tube placement.
Aircraft normally approach an airport at an angle of 3 degrees, but due to London City's closeness to built-up area's it was agreed when the airport was approved in 1986 that a 5 degree glidescope
be used in order to keep noise to a minimum.
The report said the crew decided to make a visual approach to Derry after reporting problems with the plane's instrument landing system glidescope
, which acts as an electronic guide.
It was reportedly concluded that the problem was caused by a failure of the aircraft's glidescope
, which is part of a system that tracks flight path and angle of descent during landing.
When the crew realised they were below the GlideScope
, which guides them to the runway, they should have increased power and levelled out until they were back on course.
