Abstract

Proper positioning during intubation is critical in order to increase the likelihood of success. The bed-up-headelevated (BUHE) intubation position has been shown to improve laryngeal view, reduce airway complications and prolong safe apneic time during intubation. Concurrently in the last decade, there has been an exponential increase in the use of video laryngoscopy (VL) devices, especially for difficult airway patients, as it has been shown to improve laryngeal exposure. The use of VL will increase, and may replace traditional laryngoscopy one day. In this study, we sought to determine if the BUHE intubation position is non-inferior to Glidescope-assisted intubation with regards to laryngeal exposure. In addition, we aimed to determine the differences in time required for intubation (TRI) in the two groups.
