Abstract

Previous studies have shown that the videolaryngoscope is an excellent intubation training tool as it allows the student and trainer to share the same anatomical view of the airway. Use of this training tool is limited; however, as many times intubation training must take place outside the hospital environment (as in the training of military health care providers). In this environment, the device can prove to be large and cumbersome. This study examined the use of the Storz CMAC™, a compact video laryngoscope system, for intubation training in a simulated field hospital setting with the Nebraska National Air Guard. The study showed that the C-MAC™ was well-received by the trainees and would be useful in a deployment or hospital setting..
