What's already known about this topic?
- The approach to infants with potentially compromised airways requires multidisciplinary planning. Various centers have published their experience with compromised neonatal airway and proposed algorithms regarding its management. Here, we compare our outcomes before and after the institution of a formal multidisciplinary airway management team at the University of Toronto.
What does this study add?
- This is the first paper to examine fetal outcomes before and after the institution of an airway protocol for the infants at risk.
