Incorrect Percentage

JAMA. 2020;323(12):1194. doi:10.1001/jama.2020.2069

In the Rational Clinical Examination entitled “Will This Patient Be Difficult to Intubate? The Rational Clinical Examination Systematic Review”1 published in the February 5, 2019, issue of JAMA, an incorrect percentage was reported. In the “Scenario Resolution, Case 2” section, second sentence, the first percentage should have been 20% so that the sentence reads “Based on the cursory physical examination (obese; positive LR, 2.2) and retrognathia (positive LR, 6.0), it was estimated that her posttest probability of a difficult intubation was between 20% and 40%.” This article was corrected online.
