Adapting with what you have as a stylet to successfully intubate when you do not have a Glidescope (Gliderite) stylet. Use a regular Rusch stylet and regular endotracheal tube to your Glidescope

Direct Laryngoscopy is foolish with only an endotracheal tube without a stylet. It doesn't cause trauma if sheathed fully within the ETT. Trauma can happen from the ETT by itself. You can use a Gliderite stylet or Co-Pilot stylet as well.

Even Critical Care docs.

Even Anesthesiologists before a case.
