Children with chronic illnesses have complex health-care needs, leading to frequent health-care use for acute illness, high medical care costs, and ultimately, poor health outcomes. Children with chronic illness and medical complexity (CIMC) are patients under the age of 18 who have three or more of the following: (1) medications and/or supportive therapies (nutrition, respiratory, dialysis); (2) chronic medical diagnoses for 12 months or more; and (3) dependence on technology (central or long-term peripheral line, tracheostomy, gastrostomy; Cohen et al., 2011).

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2020Source: Respiratory Medicine Case ReportsAuthor(s): Hiroshi Fukumasa, Satoshi Tsuji, Kengo Kawamura, Nao NishimuraAbstractUpper airway obstruction due to foreign body aspiration is rare in adolescents. Diagnosis of the same is difficult, and incorrect, delay of treatment is common in patients with no aspiration history. Herein, we describe the case of a 15-year-old boy who presented with upper airway obstruction because of swallowing chewing gum 4 days before presentation. The patient was initially misdiagnosed and was scheduled for an emergency tracheotomy. However, this ...

OBJECTIVE To identify variables that may contribute to delayed wound healing times in pediatric patients with tracheostomy wounds. DESIGN Researchers identified 134 charts spanning January 2013 to June 2017; 95 charts met the inclusion criteria. The study examined Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing (PUSH) scores, pressure injury staging, and albumin levels. SETTING Arkansas Children’s Hospital. PATIENTS Patients (birth to 18 years) who developed or were admitted with a wound caused by a tracheostomy device. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE Time in days to wound closure. MAIN RESULTS There was a moderate positive c...

ConclusionIn patients that had prolonged endotracheal intubation, injury to the laryngeal structures is inevitable. To minimize this occurrence, tracheotomy should be performed for intubations that extend for more than seven days. When performing the tracheotomy, the laryngeal structures should be evaluated, necessary precautions should be taken for the traumatic lesions that are difficult to heal, and treatment should be started.

CONCLUSIONS: Cricoid chondronecrosis is a serious, rare entity that can occur even after a short period of endotracheal intubation. Providers must have a high level of suspicion in patients that present with upper airway dyspnea with a history of prior intubation. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level 4.
