Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 2000 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: The "KU Score": Proposal and Clinical Evaluation of a Comprehensive Airway Exam Score; an Observational Study
Actual Study Start Date : February 2010
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2011
Actual Study Completion Date : January 2011

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
KU Score
Participants asked to answer questions for the KU Score exam
Other: KU Score
Exam with a max score of 10 and min score of 0. Designed as a preoperative assessment of the patient's airway.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation between KU score and intubation difficulty scale (IDS) measure [ Time Frame: Time between preoperative exam to after intubation, up to 3 hours ]
    The measure is assessed during the time period between the start of preoperative examination on the day of surgery and completion of a standard tracheal intubation in the operating room. Correlation measured using the Spearman correlation coefficient.
