Abstract

The wider angle of view of videolaryngoscopy versus standard direct laryngoscopy requires an assessment of the adjunctive devices used to facilitate intubation. In this study, subjects performed malleable bougie-assisted intubation and curved forceps removal of a glottic foreign body using videolaryngoscopy on a lightly embalmed cadaver and completed a post-procedure questionnaire. All subjects valued access to the malleable bougie available at their hospitals and 82% valued access to the curved forceps. Malleable bougie and curved forceps seem well-suit ed to facilitate videolaryngoscopic airway management.
