Recent developments in noninvasive ventilation allow the intensivists to delay the time o intubation of the patient admitted to the ICU. This new possibility of a gain in time leads to the fact that those patients who are intubated in the ICLI, are patients with a very compromised hemodynamic and respiratory situation. For this reason, we developed a specific protocol regarding the intubation procedure of this kind of patients. This paper reviews our strategies for endotracheal tube positioning in critically ill patients and shows the fundamental role of the nurses during this procedure.
