Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy with Direct Laryngoscopy. Not V.L.
Even without Video Laryngoscopy, I am not teaching my residents to open the mouth of the patient with the suction catheter. There will be more of a delay of diagnosing unexpected contaminants in the oropharynx since I don't have the advantage of the video laryngoscope in showing me what is there.
Because there is no monitor .
This not V.L.
You better have faith in what you are seeing.
Many will doubt this S.A.L. method will only work in Video Laryngoscopy.
V.L. only provides with a monitor for witnesses to see live your success and failures.
With D.L., only you are the witness to First Pass Success.
or the failure of such.
