    Advice

    • Ventilator settings are always required after intubation but are beyond the scope of this rapid information:
      • Tidal volume in pediatrics is often set 6-8mL/kg
      • Respiratory rate is often set 25-40 breaths / minute
      • FiO2 is often started at 1.0 (100%)
    • Post-intubation care also typically includes:
      • Chest x-ray to confirm tube placement
      • Medications for sedation and analgesia
      • Elevation of the head of the bed
      • NG tube to decompress the stomach
      • ABG after 15-30 minutes after to assess oxygenation and acid-base status
