Abstract

Lightly embalmed hemorrhagic cadaver models and the Storz CMAC videolaryngoscope fitted with either an integrated suction blade vs. a traditional blade were used to determine efficacy of the instruments in hemorrhagic airway intubation. Significant differences were found between the devices in intubation success rates of the viscosity saliva and frothy blood models, as well as a significant difference in intubation times in the frothy blood model. Feedback provided by the study participants indicated preference for the integrated video suction blade in hemorrhagic airway intubation.
