Laryngospasm on Emergence clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Laryngospasm on emergence is a condition where a person's vocal cords suddenly close shut after waking up from anesthesia. UCSF is conducting a clinical trial called "Pupillometry as Guide for Extubation Readiness in Anesthetized Children" which uses pupillometry to determine if a child is ready to have the breathing tube removed after surgery. This trial aims to improve the safety and comfort of children coming out of anesthesia.
open to eligible people ages 2-10
