Gliding Past Video-Assisted Intubation Complications: Identification, Treatment and Prevention of GlideScope-Associated Injury (.5 Class A CE)

Tuesday, September 25
10:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Location: Room 310, Hynes

While relatively rare, oropharyngeal injuries have a sixteen-fold increase in occurrence with GlideScope intubation compared to direct laryngoscopy. Patient risk factors, user risk factors and an anatomic blind spot contribute to GlideScope associated injury. With increased awareness of risk factors and mechanism of injury, anesthesia providers will reduce the incidence of GlideScope-associated injuries. With focused training and vigilance, anesthesia providers will more effectively prevent, identify, and treat these associated injuries.
