BACKGROUND: A new promising device, the Spritztube (ST), was developed combining the ability to perform both supraglottic ventilation and orotracheal fibreoptic intubation using the same device, allowing an easy passage from supraglottic ventilation to tracheal ventilation avoiding apnea. The present study aims to compare the speed and the subjective ease of insertion of the novel tracheal tube (Spritztube®) compared to the intubating laryngeal mask airway Fastrach™ (FT-LMA) in a simulation environment.
METHODS: Each participant received verbal instruction and practical demonstration concerning “technique of insertion” for both devices on manikin and, in a randomized order, used both devices. Time of placement (T1), time of inflation (T2), the elapsed procedural time (T3), ease of insertion, time of exchange maneuver for intubation (T4), success rates and number of attempts were recorded for each EAD.
RESULTS: Forty-seven participants were enrolled. The ST was judged as easier insertion than FT-LMA (P<0.001) having also a significant higher success rate than FT-LMA (P<0.001). Number of attempts for insertion was similar. Number of attempts for exchange to ETI was significantly more for FT-LMA (P<0.001). FT-LMA was applied 11 s faster than the ST (median T3 Fastrach: 13 s, ST: 24 s, P<0.001) as the exchange maneuver for ETI (median T4 FT-LMA: 13 s, ST: 24 s, P<0.001).
CONCLUSIONS: In a manikin simulation setting, insertion and intubation with and ST was performed 11 s slower than with use of a FT-LMA.
