Introduction: One of the most important skills which should be learned and performed by physicians and nurses is the correct method of intubation. Therefore, more attention should be given to such trainings. The main purpose of the recent study is manufacturing and utilization of a detector device for correct intubation which can be used by inexpert staff who are not members of anesthesia team. Materials and Methods: In a quasi experimental study a detector device was manufactured and utilized for correct intubation. In this research 400 patients undergone surgery, had been chosen for testing the device. Their ages varied from 5-75 years old and they had no chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma and heart disease. These patients have been generally anesthetized. In all patients the tracheal tube has been placed in esophagus and then immediately in trachea, using the device. The sensitivity of device was evaluated. During the procedure patients, oxygenation was not disturbed. Results: All 400 intubations were performed succesfuly using the device. In this study using air flow out of lungs, intubation was done successfuly. So the devices, sensitivity was 100%. By a professional the mean time for intubation using this device was 5 seconds, and it,s price was 1000 Rials. Conclusion: Regarding the results, it seems the device is useful in emergencies and facilitates intubation. This device is cheap and portable and seems to be more useful than other reported devices in determining correctiveness of intratracheal intubation.
