Neonatal Intubation

Suprasternal palpation: Suprasternal notch is at T2, basically where the tip of endotracheal tube should be after insertion. After thru the cords, palpate the notch with the other hand and feel for the tip of the tube. Once palpated, this should be the correct position (Paediatric Anaesthesia, 2013).
