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
