The North American Airway Collaborative (NoAAC) network is an international voluntary consortium founded in 2014 to advance the science and treatment of adult airway disorders. The collaborative is composed of clinicians and study personnel at more than 50 centers of excellence in adult airway disorders, as well as involved patient partners. The NoAAC aims to continuously improve the quality, safety, effectiveness, and cost of medical interventions in adult airway disorders through support of translation science and the establishment of best practices for diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment.
