Recently, video-capable laryngoscopes that capture images from beyond the tip of the blade and display them on monitors have improved teaching and learning. An ability to demonstrate anatomy and factors making ventilation, visualization and intubation difficult as well as manipulations that improve conditions contribute to an enhanced teaching/learning experience (2).
The Storz DCI video laryngoscope system is one of the several airway devices on the market that incorporate video capability into the blades (3). The Storz DCI intergrates a fiberoptic bundle in the standard Macintosh blade. A CCD (charge coupled device) camera housed in the laryngoscope handle produces the images. The Storz DCI Video Laryngoscope has been used successfully in difficult airways (4), bariatric (5), thoracic (6) and pediatric (7) surgeries.
