|Actual Study Completion Date :||March 2013|
Experimental: ETT first
Patients will have the endotracheal tube (ETT) introduced into the pharynx prior to GlideScope insertion, and then advanced under GlideScope guidance into the trachea.
Device: ETT First (GlideScope)
Patients will have the endotracheal tube (ETT) introduced into the pharynx under direct vision prior to GlideScope insertion. The ETT will then be advanced under GlideScope guidance into the trachea.
No Intervention: Control Group
Patients will have the GlideScope introduced into the pharynx. The endotracheal tube (ETT) will then be advanced under direct vision into the mouth/pharynx. The ETT will then be advanced into the trachea under GlideScope guidance.
