OK, I'll admit it. Sick kids scare the crap out of me. Knowing there's a sick kid coming in makes me want to run the other way, but as an ER physicians, we just have to suck it up, and get on with it, and bury that fear. Knowledge is power, and this amazing video from Emergency Medicine Updates by Reuben Strayer, earlier this 2011, is certainly essential knowledge. Hopefully it can help alleviate some of the anxiety involved in managing the sick paediatric airway.
