Mechanical ventilators A detailed discussion of individual mechanical ventilators is beyond the scope of this book. If a ventilator is used, continual re-evaluation with monitoring of expired CO2 is mandatory, as is measurement of arterial blood gases. Chest drain These are included because haemothorax or pneumothorax may severely limit ventilation. They are described elsewhere (Chapter 22). Gastric tubes Children are prone to air swallowing and vomiting. Air may also be inadvertently forced into the stomach during bag-and-mask ventilation.

Tracheal tube introducers Intubation can be facilitated by the use of a stylet or introducer, placed through the lumen of the tracheal tube. There are two types: soft and flexible or firm and malleable. The former can be allowed to project out of the tip of the tube, as long as it is handled very gently. The latter is used to alter the shape of the tube, but can easily damage the tissues if allowed to protrude from the end of the tracheal tube. Tracheal tube introducers should not be used to force a tracheal tube into position.

Tracheal tubes are measured in sizes by their internal diameter in millimetres. They are provided in whole- and halfmillimetre sizes. The clinician should select a tube of appropriate size but also prepare one a size smaller and one a size larger. In the circumstances of resuscitation in a young child where the lungs are very “stiff ”, for example in a cardiac arrest from severe bronchiolitis, a cuffed tube rather than an uncuffed tube may be used but the risk of airway damage from the cuff must be balanced against the risk of failure to inflate the lungs.
