Laryngoscopes, Flexible, Video

Definition : Flexible laryngoscopes designed with a video camera attached to its distal tip, typically in the form of a microchip (e.g., a charge-coupled device [CCD]). These endoscopes usually include a flexible fiberoptic system and a blade to protect the lens and minimize soft-tissue obstruction. Flexible video laryngoscopes are used in routine procedures and for either awake or anesthetized patients with difficult airway access. They are frequently used to improve visualization during endotracheal intubation and to decrease the possibility of neurological damage in patients with cervical spinal injuries.
