This study seeks to assess the role of the GlideScope Ranger video laryngoscope in
facilitating successful neonatal/pediatric intubation by pediatric critical care transport
teams. The central hypothesis of this study is that the GlideScope Ranger video laryngoscope
reduces the rates of failed intubation attempts by pediatric critical care transport teams.
The aims of this project are designed to specifically: (1) Establish competencies for
GlideScope Ranger video laryngoscopy-assisted intubation for pediatric and neonatal patients;
and (2) Compare the intubation success rates for intubation using GlideScope Ranger video
laryngoscopy and using conventional, direct laryngoscopy by pediatric and neonatal critical
care transport teams.
