Hansen M, Meckler G, O'Brien K, et al. Pediatr Emerg Care. 2016;32:603-607.
Appropriate airway management is a key component of resuscitation in the prehospital setting.

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.
