Combitube in the trachea isn't really a huge problem - if someone scores it  
in the trachea, changing it over to an ETT will be very simple with a tube  
changer or a long bougie... Not recognizing it will have fatal consequence. 
I'm with you on the toys... would you agree lung sounds are not enough?? I  
think you NEED to use a secondary confirmation device when you use a Combitube. 
 I think breath sounds alone = danger.
