Ducanto wields Glidescope and Pocket bougie

Master Jim DuCanto is back, demonstrating a Glidescope/Bougie assistend tracheal intubation. He is testing the Pocket Bougie by Bomimed

Note his improvised crankshaft maneuver to disimpact bougie tip from anterior tracheal wall, allowing easier passage.

Note the right arytenoid cartilage arresting passage of the railroaded ETT, requiring anticlockwise rotation of the ETT.


and here is another video of him using the Pocket Bougie with a standard Macintosh laryngoscope

Its an excellent demonstration of proper bougie assisted tracheal intubation, even if there is no bougie prepass.
