All admissions to the Shriner's Burn Institute in Galveston over a 5‐year period were reviewed. One hundred of 1,092 patients admitted (92%) required airway support (endotracheal intubation or tracheostomy) for more than 24 hours. All clinical variables relating to general presentation and airway care were tabulated. Children who required open airway operations for resolution of acquired airway defects were analyzed separately. No predictive factors could be identified. Guidelines for optimal airway management in the burned child are reviewed.
