PMID:  446175     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A new method for nasotracheal intubation of infants and young children is described. This method offers a smooth, reliable, and rapid means of entry into these children's airways in a safe and efficient manner in a wide variety of cardiorespiratory illnesses. This technique should be reserved for well-trained physicians with adequate equipment and experience. It is an optional technique for intubation that should be available in all modern general and children's hospitals throughout the country.
