The purpose of this study is to determine whether verification of correct tube placement after endotracheal intubation in the obese patient can be conducted as fast with ultrasound as with the conventional method of combined auscultation and capnography.
The investigators hypothesize that ultrasound is a faster method for verifying correct endotracheal tube placement in the obese patient than combined auscultation and capnography.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Intubation, Intratracheal Obesity||Device: Ultrasound|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Estimated Enrollment :||24 participants|
|Study Start Date :||October 2010|
|Obese patients for planned surgery and endotracheal intubation||
Ultrasound scan just proximal to the suprasternal notch during intubation and ultrasound scan of both lungs during ventilation
- Difference in time to correct verification of endotracheal tube placement between ultrasound and combined auscultation and capnography [ Time Frame: 0 to 1 hour ]
- Difference in time to correct verification of endotracheal tube placement between ultrasound and auscultation alone [ Time Frame: 0 to 1 hour ]
