The article offers the author's insights on whether video laryngoscopes are useful for paramedics during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Topics mentioned include the advantages of video larynoscopes for nasal and oral tracheal intubation over Macintosch larynoscope, the reasons why its should be the first choice, and the need for revising the training system for paramedics on airway management.
