Authors: Goswami U, Singh P Abstract The Montgomery T-tube poses a challenge to anesthesiologists because of loss of anesthetic gases through the open proximal end of the vertical limb and lack of standard anesthesia circuit connectors. Here, we present a case of a 25-year-old woman with a reported history of accidental strangulation 18 months previously. The patient had a metallic tracheostomy tube in situ due to the development of tracheal stenosis. Computed tomography showed significant narrowing in a 7-8-mm segment, 2 cm proximal to the tracheostomy tube in situ. She was scheduled for tracheal reconstruction su...

Authors: Rashid AO, Islam S Abstract Tracheostomy is a common procedure. It can be done surgically or percutaneously by dilating the stoma using Seldinger technique. Percutaneous tracheostomy (PT) is now routinely performed by surgeons and non-surgeons such as intensivists and anesthesiologists in the intensive care units (ICU) all over the world. Although obesity, emergent tracheostomy, coagulopathy, inability to extend the neck and high ventilator demand (HVD) were initially thought to be a relative contraindication, recent data suggest safety of PT in these patient population. Ultrasound can be helpful in limite...

CONCLUSIONS: During MV, the late-onset HAP subgroup was shown to have the highest Pinsp, PEEP and FiO2, the longest MV time, ICU and hospital stay, the highest frequency of tracheostomy, reconnection to MV, pulmonary hygiene bronchoscopy and the highest mortality compared to the early-onset HAP and CAP subgroups. The lowest values were found in the mechanically ventilated patients without pneumonia. The differences were due to the severity of lung damage that is graduated from CAP over early-onset HAP after late-onset HAP. PMID: 29109556 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

How airway competent is one, after completing a 3 year U.S. Anesthesia residency? Very? Smug with difficult airways? What about percutaenous tracheostomies? Is there enough hands-on? Bronchoscopies at all? Thanks.
