- •Glottic visualization improved using videolaryngoscopy (VL), especially among patients with Cormack-Lehane (CL) grades 3 and 4 on direct laryngoscopy (DL).
- •Twenty-four patients had a CL grade 1 to 2 view with DL compared with 45 patients with VL.
- •Of the 25 patients with CL grade 3 and 4 view on DL, 22 were converted to grade 1 and 2 with VL.
- •The overall success rate with VL was 96%, and the first-pass success rate was 71%.
- •VL was functional 100% of the time, with a good or excellent image 98% of the time.
