We invite you to participate in our International Survey on Cuffed versus Uncuffed Endotracheal Tubes in Pediatric Anesthesia
We are seeking your expert assistance and your participation is critical in this research. All countries in the world will be
interested so we can obtain a large amount of data.
It has been traditionally taught that only uncuffed endotracheal tubes (ETTs) should be used for intubation in children
younger than 8 years old. However, recent literature suggests that the advantages of using uncuffed ETTs in children may be just
another myth of pediatric anesthesia.
The aim of this international survey is to define and investigate the criteria used for deciding the choice of tube (cuffed or uncuffed)
togheter with the complications observed.

Please, give your name and your institution/hospital to the beginning of the survey because the results will be published on prestigious
international anesthesia journals and presented to anesthesia meetings. All the participants will be listed.
The success of the survey depends on your contribution and it is therefore important to be honest in your answers and to provide comments which you feel may be helpful.
For any information or comments you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much for your cooperation.
