BACKGROUND: Glidescope(R) is a video-assisted intubation device.It offers a clear view and is easy to use, giving it several advantages over conventional intubation devises.This study was designed to compare the hemodynamic effects and POGO scores between conventional and video laryngoscopic intubation. METHODS: Sixty adult patients with ASA 1 or 2 were randomly allocated into two groups; Glidescope(R) (group G) or Macintosh (group M).Anesthesia was induced with propofol and remifentanil.Blood pressure and heart rate were recorded just prior to intubation and 1, 3, and 5 minutes after intubation.POGO scores, intubation time and the severity of sore throat were also recorded. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in SBP, MBP, DBP, HR, POGO score, intubation time and the severity of sore throat between two groups. CONCLUSIONS: The POGO scores and hemodynamic changes associated with tracheal intubation using the Glidescope(R) were almost the same as that of the Macintosh group.
