Abstract

Failure to secure the airway with an endotracheal tube in a timely manner on induction of anaesthesia can lead to serious complications, including death. Equipment design and selection can often contribute to procedure success or failure, although current equipment does not always provide optimum solutions. Most anaesthetists consider endotracheal tube introducers (bougies) essential equipment; however, there are many different types available, with little relative performance data to inform choice. To date, no performance assessment system exists that is capable of assessing the shape retention properties of bougies. This paper discusses the design development process of the Shape Retention Testing System (SRTS) that utilises motion detection, object tracking and image processing to assess the relative performance of bougie introducers.
