Newborn baby. Paediatrician about to insert an endotracheal tube down towards a newborn baby's lungs in order to remove fluid. Newborn babies commonly have some amniotic fluid in their lungs which may hinder respiration. The fluid is removed by suction through the endotracheal tube (upper left). The remaining section of umbilical cord can be seen at lower right. At bottom right is a face mask through which respiratory gases may be given.
