Which pediatric transport team member is responsible for intubation once your team assumes care of the patient? Comments welcome.

If your pediatric transport team configuration differs from the choices listed, would you please comment?

Thank you!

We are the same, but different protocols for the medics and nurses.

The poll needs to be rewritten - as is can only choose one provider. Needs to allow multipe or a "whoever needs a tube that month more" / "whoever is up next" options
