Crash Carts are strategically placed throughout the hospital.
Glidescope® devices should have a dedicated area on each cart since intubating patient with an airway that is frequently compromised and in sub optimal locations and conditions requires every possible chance of success.

When used as a primary solution for routine airways, the GlideScope video laryngoscope is associated with a greater first-attempt success rate when compared with direct laryngoscopy. In addition, the GlideScope has been found to be 99% successful for intubation after initial failure of direct laryngoscopy, helping to reduce the incidence of failed intubation.

GlideScope video laryngoscopes are the ideal solution for intubating patients with difficult or restricted airways. From the morbidly obese to patients affected by microagnathia, GlideScope can aid in intubating the most difficult airways faster, and more effectively than direct laryngoscopy.
