    Objective:
    Waveform capnography use has been incorporated into guidelines for the confirmation of tracheal intubation. We aim to describe the trend in waveform capnography use in emergency departments and PICUs and assess the association between waveform capnography use and adverse tracheal intubation-associated events.
    Design:
    A multicenter retrospective cohort study.
    Setting:
    Thirty-four hospitals in the National Emergency Airway Registry for Children quality improvement initiative.
    Patients:
