The Use of a Video Laryngoscope by Emergency Medicine Residents Is Associated With a Reduction in Esophageal Intubations in the Emergency Department
Acad Emerg Med, 2015

The use of a video laryngoscope (VL) by emergency medicine (EM) residents during an intubation attempt in the emergency department (ED) was associated with significantly fewer esophageal intubations (EIs) compared to when a direct laryngoscope (DL) was used. Patients who had inadvertent EIs had significantly more adverse events than those who did not have EIs. EM residency training programs should consider using VLs for ED intubations to maximize patient safety when EM residents are performing intubation.
