Abstract: Our project was to design an endotracheal tube that could exhibit a customizable length in order to accommodate patients with longer necks and smaller nasal passageways. With the guidance of an oral surgeon, we've developed a solution involving a "tube-within-a-tube" technique. This design allows a surgeon to manually adapt the length on a case by case basis.
