Özet

Objectives. The age-based Cole formula has been employed estimation of endotracheal tube (ETT) size due to its case of use, but may not appropriately consider growth rates among children. Child growth is assessed by calculating the body surface area (BSA). The association between the outer diameter of an appropriate uncuffed-endotracheal-tube (ETT-OD) and the BSA values of patients at 24-96 months of age was our primary outcome.
