Abstract
PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to compare the time taken for intubation (TTI) using the Macintosh and 2 video laryngoscopes (VLs) (GlideScope [GVL]; Saturn Biomedical System, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, and Airway Scope [AWS]; Pentax, Tokyo, Japan) with and without chest compressions by experienced intubators in a mannequin model. METHODS: This was a randomized crossover study. Twenty-two experienced physicians who have limited experience in the VLs participated in the study. The TTI using 3 laryngoscopes with and without compressions were compared. RESULTS: Median TTI difference between 2 conditions was only significant in the AWS (1.64 seconds; P = .01). There were no significant differences in the TTI between the Macintosh and the GVL or the AWS during compressions. CONCLUSION: In a mannequin model, the Macintosh or the GVL was not affected by chest compressions. The TTI using the AWS was delayed by compressions but not clinically significant. Considering the lack of experience, 2 VLs may be useful adjuncts for intubation by experienced intubators during chest compressions.
