Direct Laryngoscopy/Video Blade Handling and Blade Sweep
How I handle the D.L. blade and Video Laryngoscope blade is the Same.
I don't change the handling of my blade when the patient is in the COFFIN position or in the Sniffing/Ramped/Ear to Sternal Notch position.
I open the mouth with chin-push or scissor technique.
I enter the mouth at the immediate right part of the mouth and rotate the blade downward as I swept the tongue. I will show I rehearse my handling of the handle, and do the same again and again with my Blade Sweep.
Let me demonstrate. Carmine Della Vella next to me helping me out.
