‘Cleverscope': a plastic adapter and a smartphone get a low-cost video-laryngoscope

Direct laryngoscopy allows seeing the local cords and leading the tube to the right place, but its margin of error, depending on the patients physical characteristics, might get over 20% and develop complications. The event is unforeseen and only shows at the moment of the intubation. Video-laryngoscopes are the most effective solution in these cases, but its high cost limits their use and they are not present in all operation rooms.
