BACKGROUND Pediatric tracheal intubation requires considerable expertise and can represent a challenge to many anesthesiologists. Confirmation of correct tracheal tube position relies on direct visualization or indirect measures, such as auscultation and capnography. These methods have varying sensitivity and specificity, especially in the infant and young child. Ultrasonography is noninvasive and is becoming more readily available to the anesthesiologist. In this study, we investigated the… CONTINUE READING
