Acute respiratory failure and airway challenges tracheostomy using mechanical ventilation.

Tracheostomy is an effective therapy which is frequently used during critically ill patients requiring extended mechanical ventilation due to acute respiratory arrest or airway problems. The perfect time to execute a tracheostomy or the methods to use can be widely contested. They assess tracheostomy issues under this study, and a review of related research just on precise timing for tracheostomy tube placement. According to data from two recent large randomised studies, it's indeed acceptable to wait a good 10 days to just be sure that even a patient needs artificial ventilation on such a long-term basis for attempting tracheostomy.
