Flexible, tapered-tip tube facilitates conventional orotracheal intubation by novice intubators

Abstract

Orotracheal intubation is the standard technique for airway management, but several untoward airway complications are possible with this method. To avoid airway trauma caused by the tube tip during intubation, the Parker Flex-Tip tube (PFT), which has a flexible, tapered tip, was developed.
