A Comparison of Angled (D-Blade) and Macintosh (C-MAC) Videolaryngoscopes for Simulated Difficult Airway in Pediatric Patients: A Randomized Single-blind Study
Conclusion A better laryngoscopic view was obtained with D-Blade. However, the Storz® C-Mac videolaryngoscope Macintosh blade was superior to the D-Blade in achieving a shorter time for TI.PMID:34844295 | DOI:10.3906/sag-2102-221 (Source: Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences)
