Abstract

Intubation is a core airway skill in Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM). The data on pediatric endotracheal intubation in the emergency department, especially in developing countries, is currently very limited. This study was designed to describe the frequency, clinical features and outcomes of pediatric intubation in a large children's hospital.
