Hi! Can't say how grateful I am for OTF at Dove helping me educate myself as I move forward in my training! I was wondering what different ways/protocol you use to decide what size ET tubes to use in patients? Thanks so much!!

Hi Lara! If you watch the anesthesia induction and intubation video Kristin will explain how to estimate the proper ET tube size. Some of that knowledge will come with experience over time - my best advice is to grab what you measured but also get a smaller and larger tube because some patients surprise us! Especially the brachycephalics.
