Laryngoscope Prototype Tested Against the Traditional Macintosh Blade
Recruitment status was Recruiting
The primary objective is to evaluate a knewly developed blade (for intubating patients about to undergo surgery) and compare it to the traditional Macintosh blade
Device: intubation of patients undergoing elective surgery
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind
Primary Purpose: Prevention
- succes rate - immediate evaluation
- difficulty - immediate evaluation
- Cormack & Lehane grading
- Time to intubate
- Interincissor gap
- vissible complication
|Study Start Date:||January 2006|
Intubation of patiens can be difficult, even impossible. It can result in different complications as damage to the teeth, lacerations of the mucosa, bleeding, fractures/luxations, hypoxia, hypercapnia, reflex bradycardia and in worst case braindamage and death.
The more difficult the intubation is the more frequent complicationrate. We believe to have developed a laryngoscopeblade that hopefully eases the intubationproces and thereby reduces the complicationrisk.
The patients included in this study is patients who are undergoing elective surgery requering intubation.
