Abstract


Introduction: Airway management is one of the most important medical priorities. Despite its benefits, intubation can be sometimes associated with many complications and hardships. Hard intubation can have dangerous consequences, including hypoxia, increased intracranial pressure, cardiac collapse-vascular, traumatic anatomical areas and inflammation. The purpose of this device building is to reduce such complications.
Material and Method: This tool can be used to examine film and photographs of pharyngeal organs, epiglottis, vocal cords and proximal esophagus episodes and the upper esophagus, trachea and bronchi.
Discussion: Conventional laryngoscopes and video laryngoscopes are the instruments used in intubation, each of which has its own functional limitations. Of these limitations, it is difficult to intubate that due to the lack of proper view of the anatomical routes, the processor may fail. Fiberopathic videography is a tool that can be used in the chest tube intubation, especially in difficult conditions, operating rooms, and other pre-hospital settings.
Results: Fiberopathic videography, a simple and very inexpensive tool that can visualize anatomical paths, shape simplicity directly facilitates the process of commuting and reduces potential complications.
