Endotracheal intubation is a skill employed by a diverse range of healthcare professionals in a wide variety of circumstances. Failure to put this tube in the right place (in the trachea) can result in serious injury and death. There are a wide variety of methods for verification of proper placement. Some are more widely accepted than others. A universal guideline should be adopted to allow consistent and safe practice in all situations by all who do this procedure. Training for endotracheal intubation must also include training in the verification methods. We have developed a new airway part-task trainer that allows the use of all of the methods of tube placement verification.
