Abstract: Objective To compare the effectiveness of training with a digital video disc (DVD)-based instruction versus intubation model simulator in placement of endotracheal tube by video-laryngoscope. Methods Sixty patients undergoing elective gynecology surgeries and twenty residents of Dept. of anesthesiology were randomized to place a endotracheal tube by video-laryngoscope. Results Compared with intubation model simulator, intubation time [(68±14)s vs (69±7)s], score of performance (8.24±0.64 vs 8.31±0.58), failure rate (3 times/11 vs 1time/9 residents), and instruction rate (5times/11 vs 4times/9 residents) were no statistic difference. Conclusion Digital video disc (DVD)-based instruction individuals is an alternative way to intubation model simulator in training.

Key words: computer-based digital video disc, intubation simulator, video-laryngoscopy
