In this episode, powered by the ICM Journal, Prof Sheila Myatra interviews Prof Samir Jaber, principal investigator of the STYLETO trial group, the findings of which have been recently published in the ICM Journal.
In this randomized clinical trial that included 999 patients, the use of a stylet for tracheal intubation in critically ill adult patients resulted in significantly higher first‑attempt intubation success than the use of tracheal tube alone. The incidence of serious adverse events evaluated by the rate of traumatic injuries related to tracheal intubation was similar in the two groups.
