We enrolled patients (age 18-65 years, ASA classification I-III) with a high risk of difficult ventilation and DI requiring tracheal intubation
for their elective surgeries.
The baseline variables studied were clinico-demographic profile of the patient and the intubation
details including number of attempts at intubation
, success rate, method of intubation
and duration of work in emergency as a surrogate marker of intubating doctor's experience.
Intubating providers recorded data about each intubation
using a data collection form.
The patented Vie Scope[TM] offers Paramedics and Doctors the unique ability to handle all adult intubations
using only one laryngoscope.
This positive regression co-efficient indicates that applying lidocaine on ETT during intubation
will increase the severity of sore throat by 0.
After additionally administering 1 mg of alfentanyl, the endotracheal intubation
was performed with a Macintosh size 3 laryngoscope blade.
Also was determined the general level of difficulty of intubation
in points according to table 3.
attempts more than one; every advancement of tube toward glottis was considered as an intubation
The hypertensive response to endotracheal intubation
may be harmful in patients with cardiovascular disease, increased intracranial pressure, or anomalies of the cerebral vessels.
At 5 min after intubation
in Group A (control group), the heart rate was still higher than basal value as compared with Group B (esmolol group).
Blind naso-tracheal intubation
(BNTI) is the passage of an endotracheal tube through nose into trachea without using a laryngoscope1.
The curved angulated blade and the patented prism technology allow clinicians to "look around the corner," resulting in a faster and more successful intubation
versus direct laryngoscopy.
