Study Of An Assessment To Predict Which People Might Have A Difficult Airway To Manage During Surgery

Description

Seeking men and women with either normal airways or airways that have been difficult to manage while under anesthesia for a study of a voice test might reliably predict people whose airways may be difficult to manage during an operation.

Overview

We are studying whether a simple voice study could alert a doctor caring for people in the operating room to use the extra precautions used for people with a difficult airway.

What we're hoping for

We hope that the voice analysis test being developed in this study will have the ability to predict which patients might have a difficult airway to manage in the operating room.
