To evaluate whether residents who receive guidance from a supervisor concurrently viewing the neonate's airway via video laryngoscopy will have a higher rate of successful neonatal intubations than residents receiving guidance using traditional direct laryngoscopy.
The investigators conducted a randomized controlled trial involving 48 first and second year pediatric and medicine-pediatric residents who received either video-facilitated (VDL) or traditional (TDL) supervisor guidance during direct laryngoscopy. Residents attempted intubations in the neonatal intensive care unit according to their randomization group. The primary outcome was a successful intubation that occurred within two attempts.

Experimental: Video Laryngoscopy Group
Subjects enrolled in this arm received real-time guidance from a supervisor utilizing the screen of the video laryngoscope while the subjects performed direct neonatal intubations in the NICU.
Other: Video Laryngoscopy
Residents intubate using video laryngoscopy.
Other Name: Technology-Assisted Instruction
Active Comparator: Traditional Laryngoscopy Group
Subjects enrolled in this arm, received traditional guidance while they performed direct neonatal intubations in the NICU.
Other: Traditional Laryngoscopy
Residents intubate without using video laryngoscopy.
Other Name: Traditional Instruction
- Number of Successful Intubations [ Time Frame: 12 months ]A successful intubation is defined as the placement of an endotracheal tube in the infant's trachea within two attempts.
- Number of successful intubations by resident year [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
- Number of residents with successful intubations on the first and subsequent patients [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
- Average length of time of intubation attempts [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
- Number of both serious and non-serious adverse events [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
- Number of successful intubations by residency program [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
