Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the efficiency and reliability of rigid telescopes with the two most used video-assisted intubation techniques. The primary outcome of the study is the first attempt orotracheal intubation success rate and the secondary outcomes include intubation time, mucosal injury, and complications during intubation.
