San Francisco, California 94143


Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to test whether the incidence of sore throat and other tracheal co-morbidities such as dysphagia and hoarseness can be lessened by use of a cuff manometer at the beginning of surgery to inflate to the proper pressure compared to the standard technique. The investigators hypothesis is that inflation of the endotracheal balloon using a cuff manometer immediately after intubation will reduce the incidence of sore throat and other tracheal co-morbidities.

Inclusion Criteria: - Scheduled for general anesthesia requiring endotracheal intubation with planned duration of at least 2 hours - ASA I-3 Exclusion Criteria: - Planned prolonged intubation - Planned postoperative ICU admission - Non English speaking - Mentally impaired - Existing tracheal stoma - Nasogastric tube in place preoperative - Thyroid / intra-oral surgery - Previous general anesthesia within the last 2 weeks - Use of steroids within one week before surgery (IV,inhaled, oral)
