No flow valves need to be opened. ❍ What are some of the advantages of ventilation via an endotracheal tube? The airway is isolated Potential for aspiration is reduced Ventilations and chest compressions can be interposed efficiently Inspiratory time and peek pressures can be controlled PEEP can be delivered ❍ What are the six indications for intubation?
