Airway and respiratory issues are among the most common emergencies in infants and children. Many other pediatric emergencies that are commonly seen in the operating room or emergency department require a specialized perspective. This chapter covers pediatric airway emergencies, including outside the operating room, and throughout the perioperative period. Problems such as upper airway obstruction, foreign bodies, and lower airway obstruction are also discussed. Common emergency department issues such as burns, near-drowning, and trauma, and pediatric and neonatal advanced life support are covered.
