The purpose of this study is to collect relevant airway data using the GlideScope Cobalt Video Baton 1 and 2 for intubation in a large cohort of neonates and infants weighing 10 kg or less.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||An Evaluation of Efficacy of the GlideScope Cobalt Video Baton for Intubation on Children Weighing Less Than 10 Kilograms|
- Time to intubation [ Time Frame: From the time the ETT enters the mouth until end-tidal carbon dioxide is detected on the monitor screen ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- The time to laryngoscopic views, number of attempts, and the success rate [ Time Frame: from the time the device enters the mouth until the best view is acknowledged. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||May 2009|
|Study Completion Date:||October 2011|
|Primary Completion Date:||September 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Neonates and infants requiring endotracheal intubation and in which the attending anesthesiologist decided to use the CGS-CVB will be included in this observational study. Data will be collected by one of the investigators or the research assistant/coordinator and recorded on a data sheet The data from these forms will be then entered by the investigator or research assistant/coordinator into a database maintained only for this study.
The decision of using the GS-CVB is at the discretion of the attending anesthesiologist. Consequently if consent would be required the anesthesiologist might feel compelled or biased to use the device against his will. This will also require that all possible patients's should be consented which will put a serious strain on the study personal.
