This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
We will evaluate the effect of using neuromuscular blocking agents versus no use of neuromuscular blocking agents on the difficulties of tracheal intubation (DTI) for adults and adolescents allocated tor tracheal intubation with direct laryngoscopy.
We will look at various outcomes, conduct subgroup and sensitivity analyses, examine the role of bias, and apply trial sequential analysis (TSA) (Brok 2008; Brok 2009; Thorlund 2009; Wetterslev 2008) to examine the level of evidence for this intervention.
