Abstract

Aim: Recent advances in video technology and fiber optic systems have resulted in the development of new intubation tools and technologies such as video laryngoscopes. It has been shown that as the number of endotracheal intubation attempts with conventional laryngoscopy increases, complications also increase. The aim of this study was to determine the factors affecting the successful use of video laryngoscopy on a child manikin and to compare the success rates of direct laryngoscopy and video laryngoscopy.
