  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of the C-MAC (Karl Storz Endoscopy, Inc., Tuttlingen, Germany) video intubation system guided intubation techniques.

We hypothesize that the C-MAC video laryngoscope is safe and efficacious in terms of successful endotracheal intubation. The C-MAC may be a safe and suitable alternative device for routine and difficult laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation. This is the first study to investigate the performance of C-MAC in clinical practice.
