Pediatric Advanced Airway Management Training for Non-anesthesia Residents
Tracheal intubation procedures are common, high risk events for critically ill children. Although tracheal intubation is infrequently performed by resident trainees, the Accreditation Committee for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in the United States mandates that pediatric residents gain tracheal intubation procedural competency during clinical rotations in the delivery room, neonatal ICU (NICU), and pediatric ICU (PICU) . We will review current issues regarding tracheal intubation training and skill acquisition, as well as the effects of this training on patient outcomes.
