Videolaryngoscopy for intubation

A single-center randomized trial compared intubation of neonates (in the delivery room or in the NICU) by trainees using a videolaryngoscope where the screen was visible to the instructor in the intervention group and invisible in the control group. The success rate of the first attempt was higher (66%) when the screen was visible to the instructor than when it was not (41%). In infants receiving premedication the success rates were similarly higher in the intervention group.
