Official Title: Comparison of GlideScope Groove to Standard GlideScope for Orotracheal Intubation: A Non-inferiority Study

Further study details as provided by Lawson Health Research Institute:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Duration of Intubation [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of Intubation - Mask removal to ETCO2 confirmation


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Ease of intubation [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Ease of intubation as noted by operator (measured on a 100 mm Visual Analogue Scale)

  • Incidence of trauma [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Incidence of trauma

  • Number of failures to intubate [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Number of failures to intubate

  • Use of external laryngeal pressure [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Use of external laryngeal pressure

  • Laryngoscopic grade distribution [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Laryngoscopic grade distribution according to Cormack and Lehane classification

  • Sore Throat [ Time Frame: Day 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients will be surveyed with respect to the incidence of post-operative sore throat.
