Group Description

The National Emergency Airway Registry for Children (NEAR4KIDS) is a multi-center, prospective registry for advanced airway management in pediatric intensive care units. The primary goal of the project is to improve advanced airway management practice for critically ill children.

The project currently has more than twenty participating centers in North America. It is based at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine and the database is maintained with the support of the Department of Emergency Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, in Boston, Massachusetts. This project is developed with the support of Pediatric Acute Lung Injury and Sepsis Investigators (PALISI) Network and the NEAR team.
