      Endotracheal intubation (ETI) is a common procedure in the emergency department, one in which fist-attempt success is vital to preventing peri-intubation adverse events. Endotracheal intubation is often performed with assistance from either a flexible bougie or malleable stylet placed into the endotracheal tube. A recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that the bougie had a higher first-attempt success rate. This meta-analysis took this recent study and compared it to other randomized controlled trials evaluating first-attempt success, intubation duration, and safety of using a bougie versus using a stylet.
