What is intubation ?

Intubation is a medical procedure that involves the insertion of a tube through the patient’s mouth or nose and into their trachea (windpipe) to provide a secure airway. This is done with the help of a device called an endotracheal tube, which is connected to a mechanical ventilator.

Why are patients intubated

There are several reasons why a patient may require intubation, including difficulty breathing on their own, risk of aspiration, impaired lung function, seizures or coma, or the need to perform certain medical procedures. In such cases, intubation can help to ensure that the patient receives the necessary oxygen and prevent any complications that may arise as a result of an obstructed airway.

What is direct laryngoscopy?

Direct laryngoscopy is a medical procedure that involves the use of a laryngoscope, which is a special instrument with a light and a blade, to visualize the patient's larynx (voice box) and vocal cords. This procedure is performed to diagnose and/or treat various conditions of the upper airway, such as laryngeal cancer, voice disorders, and airway obstruction.

What is video laryngoscopy?

Video laryngoscopy is a medical procedure that involves the use of a specialized laryngoscope with a camera and a screen, to visualize the patient's larynx (voice box) and vocal cords. The camera, which is attached to the laryngoscope, transmits a video image of the larynx to a screen, which is viewed by the healthcare provider performing the procedure.

What are the advantages of video laryngoscopy?

(1) Improved visualization of the larynx and vocal cords, which can enhance the accuracy of diagnosis and treatment. (2) Greater ease in identifying and managing difficult airways, such as those with anatomic abnormalities or in patients with limited neck mobility. (3) Reduced need for multiple attempts at intubation, which can decrease the risk of complications and improve patient outcomes. (4) Better training and education opportunities for healthcare providers, as the video images can be used to demonstrate proper technique and identify areas for improvement. (5) The possibility to record the procedure for review and future reference. (6) Reduced risk of trauma to oral cavity and teeth during the intubation, as the view of the larynx is clearer.
