Correct (Endotracheal) vs. Incorrect (Esophageal) Intubation
This exhibit on intubation accurately depicts the correct placement of an endotracheal tube into the trachea, past the vocal cords to the level of the carina, or bifurcation of the airway into the left and right bronchi. On the right, the illustration shows incorrect esophageal intubation which occurs when the tube is threaded into the esophagus and down to the stomach.
