Abstract: Compared with a lightwand which is used blind, Optiscope , a rigid video-stylet, can provide direct imaging of airway structures, potentially offering improved conditions in cervical spine-immobilised patients. We randomly assigned 168 patients who required cervical immobilisation during tracheal intubation to use of the Optiscope or the lightwand. The initial intubation success rate (95% CI) was 90 (82-95)% with the Optiscope and 87 (78-93)% with the lightwand (p = 0.626). Median (IQR [range]) intubation time…
