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 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 attempt.
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.
