Abstract

Clinical assessment and end-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2) detectors are used to verify tracheal intubation in newborn infants. A case is presented in which an ETCO2 detector was misleading in determining endotracheal tube (ETT) position but useful in determining the efficacy of ventilation in an extremely preterm infant.
