Abstract

(Abstracted from Anesth Analg, 122:740–750, 2016)

Video laryngoscopy helps to facilitate endotracheal intubation and can improve first-attempt success rates. However, although studies have demonstrated better intubation conditions with video laryngoscopy compared with direct laryngoscopy, it is unclear whether such results are generalizable to any type of video laryngoscope (VL) and whether all types of larygnoscopes are interchangeable.
