Title:
Use of the Video RIFL (Rigid Flexible Laryngoscope) as an Adjunct to Direct Laryngoscopy
Authors:
Setty, Harsha; Gallen, Thomas; Dubin, Stevin
Abstract:
The ASA difficult airway algorithm incorporates different modalities in its progression. It is not uncommon for the user to fail at direct laryngoscopy, thus requiring an alternate method for securing an airway. Frequently, the alternate modalities include supraglottic airways, rigid videolaryngoscopes, or flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopes. We retrospectively reviewed charts from February 2009 to February 2010 on patients intubated in the operating room using the Video RIFL.
