Abstract

A simple, rapid method of endotracheal intubation of nondomestic bovids and cervids uses a human endotracheal tube exchanger (19 Fr. X 80 cm) placed in the trachea during direct visualization with a straight long-bladed laryngoscope. A "Murphy eye" endotracheal tube can be placed into the trachea by placing the exchanger through the "eye" of the tube. The lubricated tube is passed along the exchanger toward the trachea. Passage into the trachea is facilitated by advancing and slightly rotating the endotracheal tube when the animal exhales.
