Cervical spine movements during laryngoscopy and orotracheal intubation: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Conclusions Compared with the MAC, alternative devices caused less movement during laryngoscopy (C0–C4) and intubation (C0–C3). Due to the high risk of bias and the very low grade of evidence of the studies, further research is necessary to clarify the benefit of each device and to determine the efficacy of cervical immobilisation during airway management.
