Endoscopic airway equipment part 2: equipment overview
Endoscopic devices designed for intubation include indirect optical and video laryngoscopes, rigid fibreoptic and video stylets, flexible and rigid bronchoscopes, and optic-enabled intubating supraglottic airways. Various types of surgical operating telescopes can also be used in specific circumstances. It is crucial to understand the strengths and weaknesses of different devices and blade types in order to match the device to the clinical challenge.
