The purpose of this research study is to help determine if the cuff of an endotracheal tube ( ETT) ( also known as a breathing tube)can be seen by ultrasound and to determine if visualization of this tube corresponds with correct tube depth. You are being asked to participate because you will be undergoing a cardiac catherization procedure which will involve endotracheal intubation.
Ultrasound is a safe technology that your doctor could possibly use to see the breathing tube. Right now, x-rays, which come with their own risks, are being used for this purpose. We are trying to see if we can avoid using x-rays.
This is a local study with 1 location. The study will enroll a total of 71 people. There is no sponsor for this study.

- Reliability of Ultrasound [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]Determine the reliability of ultrasound in visualizing a saline-filled cuff of the ETT in pediatric patients.
- Reliability of visualizing the cuff in patients without initial visualized cuff [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]In patients without an initial visualized cuff, determine the reliability of ultrasound in visualizing the cuff after a single retraction of the tube (as deemed permissible by cinefluoroscopy).
- Visualization of saline filled cuff [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]Determine if visualization of a saline-filled cuff at the suprasternal notch corresponds with correct tube depth as determined by cinefluoroscopy.
