An adequate airway management plan is essential for patient safety. Recently, new tools have been developed as alternatives to direct laryngoscopy and intubation. These new tools need to be evaluated in terms of efficacy and the cost-effectiveness. One of these new devices, video-laryngoscopy has enjoyed a rapid increase in popularity and is now considered by many as the first-line technique in airway management which may have significant impact on patient safety.
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
Discuss the history and applications of laryngoscopy
Describe the mechanism and use video-laryngoscopy as the new state of the art
Discuss whether video-laryngoscopy can be used routinely
