Brief Summary:
This study seeks to assess the role of the GlideScope Ranger video laryngoscope in facilitating successful neonatal/pediatric intubation by pediatric critical care transport teams. The central hypothesis of this study is that the GlideScope Ranger video laryngoscope reduces the rates of failed intubation attempts by pediatric critical care transport teams. The aims of this project are designed to specifically: (1) Establish competencies for GlideScope Ranger video laryngoscopy-assisted intubation for pediatric and neonatal patients; and (2) Compare the intubation success rates for intubation using GlideScope Ranger video laryngoscopy and using conventional, direct laryngoscopy by pediatric and neonatal critical care transport teams.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Intubation using GlideScope Ranger
The study site has two critical care transport teams per shift and will, at shift change, assign intubation team A to use the GlideScope Ranger for all intubations on that day.
Device: GlideScope Ranger Intubation
Intubation with GlideScope Ranger Video Laryngoscope
Active Comparator: intubation using direct laryngoscopy
The study site has two critical care transport teams per shift and will, at shift change, assign intubation team B. Team B will do intubations using direct laryngoscopy only that day.
Device: Direct Laryngoscopy
Intubations will be done with direct laryngoscopy.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent of Participants With Successful 1st Intubation Attempt [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Percent of participants with successful 1st intubation attempt by group (GVL vs. DL)

  2. Overall Successful Intubation Rate: GlideScope Video Laryngoscopy (GVL) vs. Direct Laryngoscopy (DL). [ Time Frame: 30 days; no long-term outcome measures were included ]
    Overall successful intubation rate defined as all successful intubations (by type) divided by all attempts (by type).
