Clinical Details

Official title: Succinylcholine vs Rocuronium for Prehospital Emergency Intubation : a Randomized Trial

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: First-pass intubation success rate

Secondary outcome:

Incidence of difficult intubation

Intubation conditions assessment

Need for alternate airway devices

early intubation-related complications

Detailed description: All adult patients with spontaneous cardiac activity and requiring tracheal intubation in the pre hospital emergency context will be included. All intubation will be performed by an emergency physician or a nurse specialized in anesthesia. For patients with spontaneous cardiac activity, rapid sequence intubation will be performed to allow intubation. Comparisons studied will be : Intubation success rate at the first laryngoscopy, glottis exposure assessed by Cormack and Lehane classification, difficult intubation rate assessed by the Intubation Difficult Score (IDS), the conditions of intubation assessed by the Copenhagen score, the need for alternative airway techniques and the immediate post intubation complications rate as vomiting, dental trauma, pulmonary inhalation, arterial desaturation , hypotension episodes and cardiac arrest occurrence.


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.


Inclusion Criteria:

- All adult patients with spontaneous cardiac activity and requiring tracheal

intubation in the pre hospital emergency context Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients in cardiac arrest;
