BACKGROUND: Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) has become a standard technique for critically ill patients who require long-term ventilation. The most common early post-operative complication is bleeding related to anatomical variation in vasculature. The procedure is performed at the patient's bedside unless this is deemed unsafe and then the accepted alternative is open tracheostomy in the operating room. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the use of pre-procedural ultrasound to aid in the decision of whether PDT in critical care patients should be performed at the patient's bedside or by open surgical tracheostomy...

BACKGROUND: With the increase in elderly population, life-threatening chronic diseases are increasing, simultaneously increasing the need for palliative care centers (PCCs). OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the factors affecting the length of stay (LOS) and discharge of patients from a PCC. METHODS: A retrospective scan was made of the records of patients followed up in the PCC between January 2013 and March 2016. A record was made of patient age, gender, diagnosis, conditions/comorbidities, Glasgow Coma Scale, Karnofsky Performance Scale, LOS, prognosis (exitus or surviving), percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG), tracheostomy, mechanical ventilator, nutrition (total parenteral nutrition [TPN] or enteral nutrition), and the results of cultures taken during stay in PCCs (blood, tracheal aspirate, urine, rectal swab, wound)...

A 76-year-old woman with right mandibular gingival cancer was scheduled for surgery. A percutaneous tracheostomy kit was used for tracheostomy under intravenous sedation. After puncturing the cricothyroid membrane, a dilator was inserted along a guidewire. Bucking was observed at the time of insertion of the dilator, despite intratracheal lidocaine spray applied before insertion. After that, the tracheostomy tube was inserted, but no capnographic waveforms appeared when the tube was connected to the anesthesia circuit...

OBJECTIVE: Percutaneous Dilatational Tracheostomy (PDT) is a commonly performed method in neurocritical care, whose safety has been proven in numerous studies. Nevertheless, there are poor data regarding the application in patients with acute brain injury and poor respiratory function. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of hypoxemia and hypercapnia during PDT in those patients. METHODS: In a retrospective analysis, we acquired data from 54 patients with an acute brain injury (ABI) and a reduced PaO2/FiO2 ratio (PaO2/FiO2<300mmHg)...

INTRODUCTION: Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) may result in abnormal respiratory and swallowing function. We analyzed factors that may influence long-term respiratory and swallowing function in aSAH patients, and compared patients with anterior and posterior aneurysm locations. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 360 consecutive aSAH patients. We recorded location of the aneurysm and respiratory indices on admission, in-hospital adverse respiratory events and the need for tracheostomy (for respiratory failure) or percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube (for prolonged dysphagia)...

Over the last decade, tracheostomy has been increasingly performed in children, aligned with the improvements in neonatal and pediatric ICU care. Nowadays, the majority of children with tracheostomy represent a very complex cohort of patients with sustained reliance on tracheostomy and related medical technology for long-term survival. Tracheostomy is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the adult ICU. Contrary to adult practice, tracheostomy is a much less common procedure in the pediatric ICU, being performed in < 3% of patients...

Although the optimal ventilation strategy is unknown for patients placed on extracorporeal support, there are increasing reports of extubation being used. Our objective is to describe the change in ventilation strategies and use of tracheostomy and bronchoscopy practices among extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) centers across the world. A descriptive, cross-sectional 22 item survey of neonatal, pediatric, and adult ECMO centers was used to evaluate ventilator strategies, extubation, bronchoscopy, and tracheostomy practices...

BACKGROUND: Tracheotomies are frequently performed on ventilated patients in intensive care and sometimes lead to fatal complications. In this article, we discuss the causes and frequency of death associated with open surgical tracheotomy (OST) and percutaneous dilatational tracheotomy (PDT) on the basis of a review of the pertinent literature. METHODS: We systematically searched the PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases and the Karlsruhe Virtual Catalog for publications (1990-2015) on tracheotomy-related deaths in adults, using the search terms "tracheotomy" and "tracheostomy...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) in critically ill patients is often led by optical guidance with a bronchoscope. This is not without its disadvantages. Therefore, we aimed to study the feasibility of a recently introduced endotracheal tube-mounted camera (VivaSight™-SL, ET View, Misgav, Israel) in the guidance of PDT. METHODS: We studied 10 critically ill patients who received PDT with a VivaSight-SL tube that was inserted prior to tracheostomy for optical guidance...

BACKGROUND: The modalities of tracheostomy for critically ill patients are still controversially discussed. Although the use of percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is generally accepted to be a safe procedure, it is still not considered to be suitable for patients requiring a permanent tracheostomy. METHODS: This was an observational cohort study investigating long-term outcome parameters of PDT. All patients having received a PDT at the interdisciplinary ICU at the University of Leipzig between October 2008 and August 2009 that survived to discharge were asked for consent to participate (n = 103)...

The number of tracheotomies in Denmark has roughly tripled over the past 15 years. During this period, percutaneous dilatational tracheotomy has become still more common because of its easier accessibility, and it accounted for 66% of all tracheotomies in 2015 vs. 9% in 2000. However, due to the risk of fatal complications the method is only applicable when anatomical and medical conditions are favourable. Surgical tracheotomy is a safer method in some patients, and it is preferred if the patient has had a tracheostomy previously or presents with a difficult anatomy, coagulopathy or previous neck irradiation...
