Abstract

Studies show the video laryngoscope enhances intubation training by facilitating visualization of airway anatomy. We examined the performance and training of military healthcare providers in a brief intubation training course which included both direct and indirect (video) laryngoscopy. This training format with the video laryngoscope improved airway visualization and intubation performance, promoting increased trainee confidence levels for successful intubation. Web-based training paired with hands-on instruction with the video laryngoscope should be considered as a model for military basic airway management training.
