5 Million Difficult Intubations Occur Worldwide Annually

There are over 50 million endotracheal intubations worldwide each year, growing at a rate of over 5% annually. 5 million of these intubations each year are considered to be difficult – this means a trained anesthesiologist needs more than 3 attempts or more than 10 min for a successful intubation.

The reality is a trained anesthesiologist is not always the one tasked with an endotracheal intubation. Often times less experienced and qualified professionals such nurses, residents and EMTs encounter difficult intubations.

The lack of adequate experience and expertise administering the procedure leads to painful consequences. Dental damage, trauma to the voice box and other painful and potentially litigious conditions for medical facilities to deal with are commonplace with difficult intubations.
