Airtraq Versus Standard Direct Laryngoscopy in the Pediatric Airway
A Comparison of the Airtraq and Standard Direct Laryngoscopy in the Pediatric Airway - A Randomized Trial.

Time to intubate, view to glottic opening and success rate are not different when Airtraq technique is used compared to standard direct laryngoscopy in children.

50 children (age 5 years and 11 month or younger) with expected easy intubation, scheduled for elective surgery requiring endotracheal intubation are enrolled.
