Direct endotracheal intubation using a novel detachable optic probe (Sunscope) by emergency medical technicians with various training backgrounds Full Text
Acta Anaesthesiologica Taiwanica,

Wang ML et al. – The research demonstrates that professional practitioners are able to use the Sunscope on their first attempt. Despite a lack of training in conventional endotracheal intubation, emergency medical technicians (EMT–I and –II) were able to complete intubation on their first attempt; a significant reduction in the time required to intubate was noted after repeated practice. All levels of naive emergency medical technicians (EMT) were able to readily visualize the vocal cords through Sunscope and, thereby, reliably insert the endotracheal tube in less than 1minute, regardless of their skills before testing.
