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.
We are gathering data about how to best design a communication system that would be easy to use and help improve communication between caregivers and people who can't talk because they have a tube down their throat helping them breath. Participants will use the investigational device to complete a few simple tasks and then we will ask them about their experience.
What we're hoping for
Develop a communication system using feedback from people who've been intubated or have a tube down their throat that would help communicate more easily with their caregivers.
