This short video demonstrates an overview of the National Tracheostomy Safety Project Paediatric emergency tracheostomy management algorithm. More detail on key steps is provided in the companion videos and sections from the links at the side of this page.

This video was filmed at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital during a routine anaesthetic. As with all of our videos, the staff, parents and patients were fully informed about the filming and have given their consent for the videos to be used by the National Tracheostomy Safety Project. The children in our videos attended a special premiere in 2019 to thank them for their participation. You can find out more about the filming of our videos here.
