Study Description
Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determinate if there is a difference in performance provided by three laryngoscope blades: plastic single use, metallic single use and metallic reusable blades.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Intubation Device: metallic single use blade Device: plastic single use blade Device: metallic reusable blade Phase 4

Detailed Description:

Primary outcome: success of intubation at the first attempt

Secondary outcomes: quality of laryngeal exposition (Cormack and Lehanne modify grade), duration to success intubation, Intubation difficult Scale and result of intubation procedure
