Data for Comparison of the UEscope Video Laryngoscope with the Traditional Direct Laryngoscope in Neonates and Infants: A Randomized Clinical Trial
The main objective of the current study was to investigate if the use of UEscope could reduce the TTI in neonates and infants. Although the quality of glottic view was comparable in both groups, the TTI was statistically significantly lower in the UEscope group. UEscope may be a better choice for tracheal intubation than conventional direct laryngoscope in neonates and infants. In the current study, 40 neonates and infants who underwent elective general surgery in a single tertiary hospital from March 2020 through October 2021 were prospectively enrolled. The inclusion criteria were patients with ages up to 12 months. Patients with history of head and neck surgery or radiation therapy, possible congenital abnormality in the cervical vertebra, and history of tracheostomy, cricothyroidotomy, and intubation were excluded.
