Endotracheal intubation procedural skill is basically performed throughout the world by healthcare professionals and is relatively safe and is among the most effective procedures.
Tracheobronchial injuries, including penetrating, blunt or iatrogenic thoracic trauma, may occur especially after the administration of endotracheal intubation after a large airway intervention.
End-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring was used in 18/22 ED intubations
, compared with just 7/19 of prehospital cases.
The overall success rate of tracheal intubations
The percentage of correctly predicted easy and difficult intubations
as a proportion of all intubations
, i.e., (true positives + true negatives)/ (true positives + true negatives + false positives + false negatives).
We considered data missing for intubations
performed during the study period if entered more than 6 weeks after the intubation
A computer was used to generate random numbers, and patients were randomly allocated to two groups in which they would receive intubation
with either the McGrath VL (Aircraft Medical Ltd., Edinburgh, UK) (n=50) or the Macintosh DL (n=50).
In this prospective randomised study, we aimed to evaluate the effect of tracheal intubation
with four different laryngoscopes [two direct: Macintosh direct laryngoscopes-classic laryngoscope (CL) and McCoy (MC) and two indirect: C-Mac (CM) and McGrath (MG) video-laryngoscopes] on haemodynamic responses in patients with a normal airway.
Results: Eighty two (87.2%) out of 94 obese patients with BMI [greater than or equal to]27.5 kg/m2 and NC/TM [greater than or equal to]5 had difficult intubation
Currently, reports suggest that compared with fentanyl, oxycodone can effectively reduce the tracheal intubation
reaction and maintain hemodynamic stability., However, the effective dose for tracheal intubation
is currently calculated according to the requirements for fentanyl.
 demonstrated that intermediate dose of labetalol blunts HR response to laryngoscopy and intubation
in healthy patients but has minimal effect on BP.
