Undergraduate biomedical engineering students have developed the first prototype of a laryngoscope blade whose future iterations could allow novices or robots to intubate patients as well as expert humans. The new laryngoscope blade has embedded force sensors that calculate its location in the airway. The sensors were trained using machine learning, with tactile patterns generated during intubations of manikins by expert anesthesiologists. LED lights provide instant feedback to the operator to direct subtle adjustments of the blade during insertion into the airway. It acts much like an expert saying “move your wrist back a little,” but more helpfully.
