Tracheal intubations can be difficult and stressful to perform, with failed intubations accounting for a significant number of reports of brain damage and mortality. Dave and his team are developing an automated, semi-rigid endoscope with the goal of increasing the success rate of securing a patent airway by substantially decreasing the skill and experience necessary to perform tracheal intubations.
In this project, Dave Gage and his team are further developing a robotic endoscope automated via laryngeal imaging for tracheal intubations to be ready for clinical testing.
