Difficult paediatric airway

A random post I came across…

We once saved a child admitted with severe scalds after trying to drink from a teapot spout using ketamine iv and some topical lidocaine.On laryngoscopy just saw a bubble of air escaping the swollen tissues and managed to push through a 2.5mm shouldered ET tube-The child was 5!
