THE PROBLEM - 51.7 million intubations performed annually in the US. - 10.3% experience complications. - 5.3 million complications need to be addressed. We aim to ease the process of intubation and improve patient outcomes by reducing the diameter of the ETT to improve visibility. This project was completed with contributions from Erin Anderson, Corin Peterson, and Lisa Sampson from the Department of Bioengineering, Rice University.
