dc.description.abstractAbstract published with permission. Airway management by pre-hospital care providers is often the subject of intense debate. It is recognised that there are wide variations in clinical training and skill fade is high among paramedics due to lack of experience and exposure (Hodkinson, 2010). Recent years have seen the development of a wide variety of video based laryngoscope devices, several of which have potential application to the pre-hospital field. There are a number of advantages and disadvantages to these devices, which are explored in more detail. Prior to any recommendations being made, further research including clinical trials would be required in the pre-hospital field, to assess the suitability of videoscope devices for paramedic airway management.
