Appropriate airway management is a key component of resuscitation in the prehospital setting. This study surveyed prehospital professionals to understand elements of prehospital pediatric airway management that may contribute to patient safety events. Investigators found that insufficient experience with pediatric airway management and difficulty deciding when an advanced airway should be performed were viewed as highly likely to lead to safety events.
