Appropriate airway management is essential for the successful transport of sick children. Airway management begins with a thorough history and physical examination and may proceed to invasive therapeutic interventions. Successful care of the pediatric airway can be achieved only with a thorough knowledge of airway management technique and equipment. In addition, familiarity and understanding of the pharmacologic adjuvants to airway management and sedation will help to achieve the primary objective of any transport team, namely a safe and smooth transport of the critically ill child.
