|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Anesthesia, Intravenous||Device: intubation of patients undergoing elective surgery||Not Applicable|
Intubation of patiens can be difficult, even impossible. It can result in different complications as damage to the teeth, lacerations of the mucosa, bleeding, fractures/luxations, hypoxia, hypercapnia, reflex bradycardia and in worst case braindamage and death.
The more difficult the intubation is the more frequent complicationrate. We believe to have developed a laryngoscopeblade that hopefully eases the intubationproces and thereby reduces the complicationrisk.
The patients included in this study is patients who are undergoing elective surgery requering intubation.
