Remifentanil and Atropine for Intubation in Neonates
Remifentanil and Atropine for Intubation in Neonates; a Randomized Controlled Trial

The investigators hypothesize that the use of a combination of Atropine and Remifentanil will safely facilitate non emergent intubation procedure as effectively as the protocol of Atropine, Fentanyl, and Succinylcholine.
