The Berci Kaplan video-laryngoscope increases paediatric tracheal intubation success by
L. Walker, G. Wilson, T.Engelhardt, J.Morse
Dept of Anaesthesia, Royal Aberdeen Childrens Hospital
Paediatric tracheal intubation is a vital and life saving skill in the emergent setting
Increases angle of view from 150 to 800
Shared point of view for teacher and learner
Similar design and technique to Macintosh laryngoscope
Need for coordination between hand movements and screen
Low D. Healy D. Rasburn N. The use of the BERCI DCI Video Laryngoscope for teaching novices direct laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation. Anaesthesia. 63(2):195-201, 2008 Feb.
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
Time to view glottis
(Range of 2-78 seconds)
(Range of 1-48 seconds)
Success of intubation
Time to intubation
(Range of 8-100 seconds)
(Range of 8-104 seconds)
-Teaching paediatric airway skills
-Use by personnel with little paediatric intubation experience in emergency setting
