Evaluation of the Pentax-AWS(®) and the Macintosh laryngoscope in difficult intubation: a manikin study.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: The Pentax-AWS (AWS(®)), a new video laryngoscope, has been shown to be useful in cases of difficult intubation. We hypothesized that the AWS(®) would be more useful in the settings of a narrow upper airway than the Macintosh laryngoscope. We compared each device in simulated scenarios of representative difficulty of tracheal intubation using a manikin. The primary endpoint was the rate of successful intubation. METHODS: With each device, 23 anesthesiologists performed tracheal i...
