Kristensen et al. Endotracheal video-laryngoscope guided intubation with a 2.4 mm cuff’ed tube and active expiration by a dedicated ventilator versus a standard tube/ventilator. A randomized single blinded study in patients with a predicted difficult airway. – A paradigm shift in airway management? Abstract #3755 presented at Euroanaesthesia 2019 – Manuscript in preparation
Drs. Kristensen and Abildstrøm showed in a randomized controlled trial in patients with predicted difficult laryngoscopy undergoing head/neck surgery that Tritube improves intubation and surgical conditions as compared to a standard MLT-6. Additionally, they demonstrated that, with a deflated cuff, Tritube is equally well tolerated as compared to a standard tube exchanger when left in situ postoperatively.
