A Comparison of Cervical Spine Movement During Tracheal Intubation Using the Pentax or the Glidescope
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||c-spine movement during intubation|
|Treatments||the glidescope video laryngoscopy, the pentax airwayscope|
|Sponsor||Prince of Songkla University|
|Start date||May 2010|
|End date||June 2011|
|Trial size||200 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01347151, Glide VS Pentax|
Both Glide scope and Pentax laryngoscope are video laryngoscope that provide the better view with minimal cervical spine movement. This study wants to compare cervical spine movement during intubation when using these two devices. The C-spine motion will be recorded by using fluoroscopic video to measure the angular displacement of the vertebrae.
|Endpoint classification||safety study|
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
the angular displacement of the vertebrae
time frame: 30 seconds
the hemodynamic changes after intubation.
time frame: 15 minutes
Male or female participants from 18 years up to 75 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - ASA I-III - Age 18-75 years old - Elective noncardiac surgery requiring general anesthesia with tracheal intubation Exclusion Criteria: - Gastroesophageal reflux disease - Body mass index greater than 35 kg/m2 - Possibility of pregnancy - Previous neck surgery - Unstable C-spine/ C-spine abnormality - Known difficult airway - Suspected difficult airway
|Principal investigator||Nalinee Kovitwanawong, MD|
|Description||The primary outcome is the angular displacement of the vertebrae and secondary outcome is the hemodynamic changes after intubation.|
