Authors: Walaszek M, Gniadek A, Kolpa M, Wolaka Z, Kosiarska A Abstract BACKGROUND: Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP) is an undesired side effect of mechanical ventilation in intensive care units (ICUs). AIM: We evaluated whether endotracheal tubes with subglottic secretion drainage (SSD) would reduce the incidence of VAP among patients undergoing mechanical ventilation in an ICU. METHODS: The analysis of medical records of patients undergoing mechanical ventilation exceeding 48 h who were hospitalised in ICUs between 2007 and 2014 led to separating two groups of patients: those in whom no subglottic dr...

Abstract Surgical tracheostomy is a commonly provided service by surgical teams for patients in intensive care where percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy is contraindicated. A number of factors may interfere with its provision on shared emergency operating lists, potentially prolonging the stay in intensive care. We undertook a two-part project to examine the factors that might delay provision of surgical tracheostomy in the intensive care unit. The first part was a prospective audit of practice within the University Hospital Coventry. This was followed by a telephone survey of oral and maxillofacial surgery uni...

This study was conducted to evaluate the clinical course, etiology, and antimicrobial resistance of bacterial agents of VAT in ICUs in Hamedan, Iran. METHODS: During a 12-month period, all patients with VAT in a medical and a surgical ICU were included. The criteria for the diagnosis of VAT were fever, mucus production, a positive culture of tracheal secretions, and the absence of lung infiltration. Clinical course, including changes in temperature and tracheal secretions, and outcomes were followed. The endotracheal aspirates were cultured on blood agar and chocolate agar, and antimicrobial susceptibility testing of i...

Authors: Oryoji D, Ono N, Himeji D, Yoshihiro K, Kai Y, Matsuda M, Tsukamoto H, Ueda A Abstract Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare systemic autoimmune disease that affects cartilaginous structures. RP causes tracheobronchomalacia (TBM) by affecting the bronchial cartilage. TBM is a fatal condition characterized by excessive weakening of the walls of the trachea and bronchi. We herein report a case of a 73-year-old man who experienced sudden respiratory failure due to TBM caused by RP. Immunosuppressive treatment did not improve his respiratory failure. Multiple metallic stentings dramatically improved his seve...

CONCLUSIONS: This study provides a retrospective analysis of a small study cohort; therefore, validation of our findings requires a prospective randomized multicenter study on early tracheostomy in respiratory high-risk liver transplant recipients. PMID: 29025380 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In Reply We are delighted that Dr Deeb and his colleagues see applicability for use with adults as well as children of our 10 commandments for management of acute upper airway obstruction. Hopefully, our 10 rules have validity based on many years of collective experience, and we know that few otolaryngologists have more experience or wisdom than Dr Ziad Deeb. So, we agree that heart rate should be monitored closely as an indicator of changes in severity of upper airway obstruction and we fully agree that vertical incision for tracheotomy is the quickest and safest kind of incision to make.
