In patients with pulmonary disease or prolonged asystole pulmonary oedema and intrapulmonary shunting may make the tracheal route poorly effective. If there has been no clinical effect, further doses should be given intravenously as soon as circulatory access has been secured. Alkalising agents Children with asystole will be acidotic as cardiac arrest has usually been preceded by respiratory arrest or shock.

These tubes should no longer be used. Estimating the appropriate size of an tracheal tube is carried out as follows: Internal diameter (mm) = (Age/4) + 4 Length (cm) = (Age/2) + 12 for an oral tube Length (cm) = (Age/2) + 15 for nasal tube These formulae are appropriate for ages over 1 year. Neonates usually require a tube of internal diameter 3–3·5 mm, although pre-term infants may need one of diameter 2·5 mm. Another useful guideline is to use a tube of such a size that will just fit into the nostril.
