Study Description
Brief Summary:
Both Glide scope and Pentax laryngoscope are video laryngoscope that provide the better view with minimal cervical spine movement. This study wants to compare cervical spine movement during intubation when using these two devices. The C-spine motion will be recorded by using fluoroscopic video to measure the angular displacement of the vertebrae.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
C-spine Movement During Intubation Device: The glidescope video laryngoscopy Device: The Pentax airwayscope

Detailed Description:
The primary outcome is the angular displacement of the vertebrae and secondary outcome is the hemodynamic changes after intubation.
