Brief Summary:
The European Resuscitation Council (ERC) 2010 cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidelines suggest that intubators should be able to secure the airway without interrupting chest compression. We examine the performance of the Berci-Kaplan DCI (BERCI), the GlideScope (GVL), the AirTraq, the Pentax AWS (Pentax) and the Miller laryngoscope (MIL) for endotracheal intubation (ETI) during pediatric resuscitation with and without chest compressions.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Intubation Time [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    time in seconds required for a successful intubation attempt with the five different ETI devices


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Successful intubation [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    effectiveness of first, second, third intubation attempts and overall effectiveness intubation attempt using all intubation devices

  2. POGO score [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    self reported percentage og glottis opening (POGO) score

  3. VAS score [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    To assess subjective opinion about the difficulty of the procedure, participants were asked to rate it on a visual analogue scale (VAS) with a score from 1 (very easy) to 5 (very difficult).

  4. Preferred ETI device [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    participants were asked which method of ETI they would prefer in a real-life resuscitation.

  5. First Pass Attempt [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Endotracheal Intubation (ETI) attempt will be defined as tip of the laryngoscope blade passing the patient's lips. First attempt success rate will be defined as the number of successful placements occurring on the first attempt to place the endotracheal tube.

  6. Overall Success [ Time Frame: intraoperative ]
    Overall success rate will be defined as the total number of successful placements divided by the total number of patients treated.
