Scottish Paediatric Anaesthetic Network April 2008

The Berci Kaplan video-laryngoscope increases paediatric tracheal intubation success by

non-anaesthetists

L. Walker, G. Wilson, T.Engelhardt, J.Morse

Dept of Anaesthesia, Royal Aberdeen Childrens Hospital


Background

Background

Paediatric tracheal intubation is a vital and life saving skill in the emergent setting


Background1

Background

  • Tracheal intubation is a core skill in anaesthesia

  • Paediatric airway provides particular challenges to both to acquisition and teaching of this skill


Video laryngoscopy

Video-Laryngoscopy

  • Provides a view of airway anatomy which is not dependant on laryngoscopists direct line of sight

  • Berci Kaplan video-laryngoscope projects image from tip of blade onto a screen remote from patient

Video laryngoscopy1

Video-Laryngoscopy

  • Advantages

    Increases angle of view from 150 to 800

    Shared point of view for teacher and learner

    Similar design and technique to Macintosh laryngoscope


Video laryngoscopy2

Video-Laryngoscopy

  • Disadvantages

    Need for coordination between hand movements and screen


Angle of view direct vs video laryngoscopy

Angle of view, direct vs. video-laryngoscopy


Video laryngoscopy3

Video-Laryngoscopy

  • Berci Kaplan video-laryngoscope has been studied both for airway management and as a teaching tool

  • Has been shown to be of use in management of difficult airways

  • Greater incidence of successful tracheal intubation by novice practitioners in adult setting

Hypothesis

Hypothesis

We hypothesised that the familiar design and intuitive technique of video-laryngoscopy would result in a shorter time to visualise the glottis and intubate the trachea, with a higher rate of success for novices in the paediatric setting


Methods

Methods

  • Research Ethics Committee approval

  • 70 non-anaesthesia staff recruited (nursing staff, theatre ODPs, medical students, non-anaesthesia medical trainees)

  • Any previous tracheal intubation experience recorded


Methods1

Methods

  • Given baseline training in laryngoscopy and intubation with direct and video-laryngoscopes

  • Standardised description and practical demonstration


Methods2

Methods


Methods3

Methods

  • Laerdal SimBaby manikin used

  • Realistic, airway anatomy

  • Reproducible environment


Methods4

Methods

  • Volunteers asked to view the glottis of manikin and if possible, intubate using both direct and video-laryngoscopes, in a random order

  • Time to view glottis, time to intubation and placement of tube recorded


Methods5

Methods


Results

Results

Time to view glottis

  • Direct Laryngoscopy 11.5 seconds

    (Range of 2-78 seconds)

  • Video-Laryngoscopy 8 seconds

    (Range of 1-48 seconds)


Results1

Results

Success of intubation

  • Direct Laryngoscopy 53%

  • Video-Laryngoscopy 84%


Results2

Results

Time to intubation

  • Direct Laryngoscopy 40.5 seconds

    (Range of 8-100 seconds)

  • Video-Laryngoscopy 34.5 seconds

    (Range of 8-104 seconds)


Results3

Results

  • 43/70 volunteers stated that the video-laryngoscopy was easier to use, stating factors such as improved view of glottis and greater certainty of tube position

  • 6/70 volunteers commented on difficulties coordinating hand and screen movements during video-laryngoscopy


Discussion

Discussion

  • Marked increase in incidence of successful tracheal intubation by novices using video-laryngoscopy

  • Straightforward to teach and critique


Discussion1

Discussion

  • Potential uses of video-laryngoscopy

    -Teaching paediatric airway skills

    -Use by personnel with little paediatric intubation experience in emergency setting
