Background

By

Dr Jose Chacko & Dr Swapnil Pawar

Although increasingly less frequent, placement of a tracheostomy has become a viable alternative to prolonged endotracheal intubation, with the benefits of improving patient comfort, reducing need for sedation, lowering airway resistance, and allowing for easier airway care. There has been considerable debate on the timing and selection of ICU patients. In this podcast, Dr Chacko and I critically appraise the latest evidence & share our preferred approach.
