Comparison of the outer diameter of the 'best-fit' endotracheal tube with MRI-measured airway diameter at the cricoid level.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE In this study, we evaluated the ratio of the outer diameter of an uncuffed Mallinckrodt endotracheal tube (ETT, Mallinckrodt Tyco Healthcare UK Ltd) to the MRI-measured internal transverse airway diameter (ITD) at the cricoid level in children. METHODS With institutional ethics committee approval and parental consent, we measured… (More)
