Abstract

Endotracheal forms an indispensable component of neonatal resuscitation. Due to very small tracheal length and other anatomical constraints, placement of Endotracheal Tube (ETT) accurately in a neonate has always been a difficult task. Despite various recent advances in neonatology, significant proportions of intubations are still inappropriately positioned. Malpositioned ETT are more likely to cause complications. These complications may become irreversible quite early in the course, particularly in preterm neonates. In this paper, we aim to elucidate various methods that aid in determining the accurate placement of an ETT in neonates.
