Blind nasal intubation is a manoeuvre of undoubted value in circumstances where a direct view of the glottis is difficult or impossible but even diligent practice will not guarantee that the anasthetist will be able to pass a tube in this way in a desperate situation where time is pressing. Repeated thrusts with the endotracheal tube may tear the mucosa or excite glottic spasm. The development of sophisticated fibre-optic endoscopes which carry their own flexible illuminating and viewing… 

The broncho-fiberscope as an aid to endotracheal intubation.

Laryngoscopy using this method in the conscious patient is a simple, safe and atraumatic technique which is acquired by any experienced anaesthetist.

Fibreoptic intubation and bronchofibrescopy in anaesthesia and intensive care

Studies and case-reports on fibreoptic intubation and other applications of thc tcchnique in anaesthetic practice are revicwcd.

Difficulty in advancing a tracheal tube over a fibreoptic bronchoscope: incidence, causes and solutions.

The main aim of this review article is to analyse the incidence of, causes of and possible solution to, the dif®culty in advancing a tube over a ®brescope into the trachea.

A Comparison of Tracheal Tube Tip Designs on the Passage of an Endotracheal Tube during Oral Fiberoptic Intubation

The authors conclude that the use of the silicone-tipped tube with the new bevel design may provide an advantage in the clinical situation of fiberoptic intubation.

Optical Devices in Tracheal Intubation—State of the Art in 2020

Developments in optical devices, other than laryngoscopes, in airway management and tracheal intubation are focused on, bringing information on advantages and limitations in their use, compares different devices, and summarizes benefits in various clinical settings.

Performance of a Plastic Optical Fiber Stylet for Tracheal Intubation of a Dog

Direct illumination from a laryngoscope provides a better television monitor image than when only ambient light is used and a novel plastic optical fiber incorporated into an ETT stylet can be used with a lARYngoscope for intubation of a dog.

Fibreoptic nasal intubation in children with anticipated and unanticipated difficult intubation

Fibreoptic laryngoscopy in anaesthetized children with difficult anticipated or unanticipated tracheal intubation in trained hands is a safe technique that can be lifesaving and all anaesthesia trainees are urged to become proficient in fibreoptic Tracheal Intubation.
