Endotracheal intubation is a procedure used to secure the airway in patients who are unable to breathe on their own due to a medical emergency or surgery. It involves inserting a flexible tube through the mouth or nose and down into the trachea. Endotracheal Tube intubation is a critical intervention that is used in emergency situations when the patient's airway is compromised. This includes situations such as respiratory distress, cardiac arrest, or trauma to the airway.
Endotracheal intubation should be performed by trained medical professionals who have the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience to perform the procedure safely and effectively. This is because there are potential risks and complications associated with the procedure, such as injury to the airway or esophagus, and misplacement of the tube.
