A Comparison of Three Maneuvers and Their Effect on Laryngoscopic View, Time to Intubate, and Intubation Outcome by Novice Intubators in a Simulated Airway.

Abstract

Aim The goal of this study was to compare the relative effectiveness of three adjunctive maneuvers - head elevation (HE), forward laryngoscope traction (FT), and external laryngeal manipulation (ELM) - on laryngoscopic view, intubation time, and intubation success performed by a sample of novice intubators using a simulated airway. METHODS Twenty-two… (More)
