Brief Summary:
Intubation with an unchanneled videolaryngoscope mandates the use of a stylet. The Gliderite is a stylet specially designed for videolaryngoscopes. The investigators aim to compare the efficacy of a new designed bougie for intubation in patients with simulated difficult airways.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Nasal Obstruction Lumbar Stenosis, Familial Device: Tracheal intubation with Gliderite Device: Tracheal intubation with S-guide Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Intubation with an unchanneled videolaryngoscope mandates the use of a stylet. The Gliderite is a stylet specially designed for videolaryngoscopes. The investigators aim to compare the efficacy of a new designed bougie for intubation in patients with simulated difficult airways.

The primary endpoint will be time necessary for intubation, secondary endpoints will be injuries, ease of use and subjective assessment.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time necessary to intubate [ Time Frame: 50 seconds ]
    Time needed to pass tracheal tube through vocal cords


Secondary Outcome Measures :

    Assessment of discomfort after procedure

  2. Standardized questionnaire assessing ease of use of the intubation [ Time Frame: 50 seconds ]
    assessment by doctor of ease of intubation

  3. Subjective ease of use of the intubation assessed by questionnaire [ Time Frame: 50 seconds ]
    assessment by doctor of ease of intubation
