Utility of the Aintree Intubation Catheter in fiberoptic tracheal intubation through the three types of intubating supraglottic airways: a manikin simulation study

Ueki R, Komasawa N, Nishimoto K, Sugi T, Hirose M, Kaminoh Y. J Anesth. 2014 Jun;28(3):363-7

Manikin trial comparing LMA Fastrach-Single Use, air-Q and I-gel with success rate of tracheal intubation, intubation time and collision with the glottis measured. Results suggest Fastrach took longer to intubate with a higher failure rate, and the Aintree Intubation Catheter reduces collisions.

Tracheal intubation with a camera embedded in the tube tip (VivasightTM)

Huitink JM, Koopman EM, Bouwman RA, Craenen A, Verwoert M, Krage R, Visser IE, Erwteman M, van Groeningen D, Tijink R and Schauer A. Anaesthesia. 2013 Jan;68(1):74-8

Study on tracheal intubation in manikins and patients with a camera embedded in the tip of the tracheal tube Vivasight™ pre-loaded in a size 5 i-gel®. All attempted intubations were successful, with a mean time of 1.4 seconds, and was faster when compared to intubation via LMA®.

Tracheal intubation through the i-gel® Supraglottic airway versus the LMA Fastrach®: A randomized controlled trial

Halgawi A, Massicotte N, Lallo A, Gauthier A, Boudreault D, Ruel M, Girard F. Anesth Analg. 2012; 114(1): 152-156

160 patients were randomised for blind intubation via i-gel® or LMA Fastrach®. First attempt and overall success rates were recorded and time to intubation was measured.
