The endotracheal bougie is used for difficult intubations when only a minimal glottic view is obtained. Standard bougies are designed for use during direct, line-of-sight viewing of the glottic opening. With videolaryngoscopy, intubators "see around the corner", thus requiring a bougie which can be shaped to follow a significant curve. A malleable bougie with an imbedded internal wire was created to enable intubators to shape the curve to best fit a difficult airway. This pilot study examined the malleable bougie compared to the SunMed™ bougie in a simulated difficult airway intubation using video laryngoscopy.
