When performing orotracheal intubation in the ED, adverse event incidences increase substantially as the number of attempts increase.[1] Complications include hypoxemia, aspiration, bradycardia and cardiac arrest.[2]

Forty million intubations are performed in the U.S. each year with 600,000 resulting in major complications leading to 120,000 deaths.[3]

Successful first-pass intubations are critical to positive patient outcomes.
