Active Comparator: Direct Laryngoscopy
Laryngoscopy will be performed with the randomized device, which will be the Miller Laryngoscope.
Device: Miller Laryngoscope
Device is used to facilitate tracheal intubation.
Active Comparator: Glidescope Cobalt Video Laryngoscopy
Laryngoscopy will be performed with the randomized device, which will be the Glidescope Cobalt Video Laryngoscope.
Device: Glidescope Cobalt Video Laryngoscopes
The laryngoscope design with the integration of video technology into the laryngoscope blade.
- Time to Tracheal Intubation [ Time Frame: Measured the time of the randomized device past the teeth/gums until its removal after intubation as the time to intubation. ]The amount of time it takes the anesthesiologist to insert a breathing tube using one of two methods, either by direct laryngoscopy or using the Glidescope Cobalt Video system.
