Abstract

Direct laryngoscopy for airway management was introduced into clinical medicine almost 70 years ago and is still the dominant modality. The recent development of video and optical laryngoscopy could be the most important change in this paradigm. This paper examines state of the art devices and makes recommendations regarding specific advantages they advance for the field of emergency medicine.
