Comparison of Glottic Exposure and Haemodynamic Response Using Macintosh and Flexitip Blades in Adult
Laryngoscopy forms an important part of general anesthesia and endotracheal intubation. To ease the process of intubation laryngoscopic blades of different shapes have been designed. The aim of this study is to evaluate the laryngoscopic view and haemodynamic response using conventional Macintosh blade and is compared with that obtained using Flexitip blade.
