Critical Procedures Made Easier with Intubation Upgrade

Engineering students at Rice University are working to make intubation more intuitive and air more accessible to patients with a wireless video laryngoscope.

“I wasn't really aware of the impact this could have in the context of COVID-19,” said RU senior, Victoria Kong . “But as we got into it, I realized this is an important tool to help airway managers minimize contact with potentially contagious aerosolized particles. And the wireless video capability of our device further creates distance for the safety of the health care provider.”
