|Official Title:||Comparative Effectiveness of the C-MAC D-blade to Glidescope Videolaryngoscope in the Predicted Difficult Airway|
|Study Start Date :||May 2013|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||June 2014|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||August 2014|
Active Comparator: C-MAC
Providers will utilize the C-MAC video laryngoscope equipped with a D-blade to facilitate intubation
Active Comparator: Glidescope
Providers will utilize the Glidescope video laryngoscope equipped with the #4 blade to facilitate intubation
- Intubation Success Rate [ Time Frame: 1 week ]Success rate is defined as a single blade insertion with successful tracheal tube placement confirmed by return of end-tidal carbon dioxide
- Intubation Time [ Time Frame: 1 week ]Intubation time is defined as the time from blade insertion to first return of end-tidal carbon dioxide
- Graded Score of Laryngeal View Achieved [ Time Frame: 1 week ]Laryngeal view is defined by the modified Cormack and Lehane scale (1-4) and is assessed by the clinician and the study team. Grade 1 is considered to be a good view while grade 4 is considered to be a poor view.
- Number of Particpants Requiring Adjuncts to Assist Intubation [ Time Frame: 1 week ]The need for use of a gum-elastic bougie or external laryngeal manipulation to facilitate tube placement will be measured by the study team.
- Number of Participants With Observed Complications [ Time Frame: 1 week ]Patients will be examined for evidence of mucosal or dental injury upon intervention. Patients will be asked if they have a sore throat in the recovery room, and their medical record will be reviewed to determine if any other airway related complications were observed by the clinical team including the need for reintubation or steroid administration to reduce swelling.
