AbstractBackground: The essence of anaesthesia practice in every case is uneventful laryngoscopy and intubation. The current study compared the King Vision Video Laryngoscope (KVVL) channelled blade to the Macintosh laryngoscope (ML) in terms of laryngoscopic view, laryngoscopic time, and time required to complete tracheal intubation with the head in neutral position. We aimed to see if there were any drawbacks to using the King Vision Video Laryngoscope in routine clinical practice in terms of hemodynamics.
Methods: Eighty patients undergoing elective surgery requiring general anaesthesia and tracheal intubation were randomly assigned to receive either the King Vision Video Laryngoscope or the Macintosh laryngoscope for tracheal intubation. Data were collected during and after laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation which included laryngoscopic view, time and side effects after a standardised general anaesthetic
