Dr. Priyanka Gangad | Dr. Deepali Thakur 
Abstract: Aim: This study was performed to evaluate effectiveness of D blade video laryngoscope with respect to first attempt success rate, intubation and laryngoscopy time, intubation difficulty score (IDS) in adult patients undergoing cervical spine surgery. Materials and Methods: This prospective study was carried out at a tertiary care hospital. Total 40 adult patients for elective surgery under general anaesthesia were included in this study. First attempt intubation success rate, laryngoscopy and intubation time, IDS were noted during the intubation. Result: Our study showed that 97.5% patients were intubated in first attempt and only 1 patient required second attempt at intubation. Mean laryngoscope time and intubation time required was 15.28 ? 4.57 and 19.68 ? 4.03 respectively. Also study showed 27.5% patients had IDS score 0 and 72.5% patients had score between 1-5. Conclusion: Disposable D blade video laryngoscope offers high first attempt success rate by providing good laryngeal view, less laryngoscopy and intubation time and low IDS score during intubation in adult patients undergoing cervical spine surgery.
