  Purpose
This is a prospective randomized clinical study to be performed in pediatric patients under the age of 2 years who are undergoing surgical procedures requiring endotracheal intubation. Time to endotracheal intubation will be compared between patients intubated using a GlideScope® video laryngoscope, those intubated with a Storz DCI® video laryngoscope, and those intubated by standard direct laryngoscopy. The study hypothesis is that the time to endotracheal intubation will be decreased in the Storz DCI® video laryngoscope group when compared to the GlideScope® video laryngoscope group and standard laryngoscopy.

Condition Intervention
Endotracheal Intubation Device: Endotracheal intubation

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: A Comparison of the Glidescope® Video Laryngoscope and the Storz DCI® Video Laryngoscope for Endotracheal Intubation in Children Younger Than Two Years of Age

Further study details as provided by Elizabeth Ghazal, Loma Linda University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measurement of Time to Intubation Will Begin at the Time of Mouth Opening and End With the Removal of the Tip of the Laryngoscope Blade From the Patient's Mouth After Successful Endotracheal Intubation. [ Time Frame: Less than one day, representing the day of surgery and period of endotracheal intubation during induction of general anesthesia ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Successful Intubation After One Laryngoscopy Attempt [ Time Frame: Less than one day, representing the day of surgery and period of endotracheal intubation during induction of general anesthesia. ]
    Other secondary outcome measures will be the use of external laryngeal manipulation to improve glottic view, tissue trauma and type,and method of rescue if initial intubation attempt proves unsuccessful.

  • Successful Intubation After Two Laryngoscopy Attempts [ Time Frame: Less than one day, representing the day of surgery and period of endotracheal intubation during induction of general anesthesia. ]
  • Successful Intubation After Three Laryngoscopy Attempts [ Time Frame: Less than one day, representing the day of surgery and period of endotracheal intubation during induction of general anesthesia. ]
  • Successful Intubation After Four Laryngoscopy Attempts [ Time Frame: Through endotracheal intubation during induction of general anesthesia, an average of 10 minutes ]
