|Study Start Date :||September 2010|
|Primary Completion Date :||December 2010|
|Study Completion Date :||December 2010|
Device: Ultrasonography (Sonosite )
Sonosite MICROMAXXTM with linear probe L38e/10-5 MHz
- The confirmation of ETT depth [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]A transcricothyroid membrane view of the ultrasonography was chosen for confirmation of ETT depth measurement. Firstly, measured the distance from probe (skin) to anterior surface of ETT. Then, measured the distance from probe (skin) to balloon cuff level. Finally the depth of ETT (Distance from vocal cord to balloon cuff) was calculated by using Pythagorus rule.
- The confirming the presence of ETT in airway. [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]A transcricothyroid membrane view was chosen for confirmation of ETT position. Various glottic structures such as True Vocal Cord (TVC), False Vocal Cord (FVC), and arythenoid cartilage can be visualized.
