This study examined the utility of a novel tongue retractor created with a wider working blade and a more ergonomic curve to provide jaw lift and tongue management with one hand during intubation. Anesthesia providers participated in simulated intubation of a difficult manikin using the novel tongue retractor with the Bonfils video fiberscope. Results show that the tongue retractor improved placement success and was well received by the study participants.
