Videolaryngoscopy versus direct laryngoscopy for adult surgical patients requiring tracheal intubation for general anaesthesia

  • Protocol
  • Intervention



This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

Our primary objective is to assess whether the use of videolaryngoscopes for tracheal intubation in adults requiring general anaesthesia for surgery reduces the risk of complications and failure compared to direct laryngoscopy. Our secondary aim is to assess the benefits and risks of these devices in selected population groups, such as people with obesity.
