Abstract

Due to the difficulties associated with placing cuffed pediatric endotracheal tubes during emergency situations, there is a need to develop cuffed endotracheal tubes that will be quick and easy for nurses and paramedics to use while reducing the risk of causing tracheal damage, such as stridor, in pediatric patients under the age of 8.
