In critically ill patients, Percutaneous Dilatational Tracheostomy (PDT) is a frequently performed procedure. It could be secure bedside results. This has contributed to a decrease in the level of with the exception of a few selected cases, surgical tracheostomy is used.
Data on new methods of insertion, pacing, safety profile and complication rates have been published over the last 10 years, which have enhanced our understanding of this procedure significantly. The need for prolonged ventilation is the most common sign of an ICU tracheostomy.
With an improvement in skills, complications are minimized. Several techniques of conducting PDT have recently been discovered, and the PDT has been found to be useful procedural aids for bronchoscopy. In our research brief review on the use of PDT in ICU, various percutaneous techniques will be discussed.
We conclude that as opposed to surgical tracheostomies, percutaneous tracheostomies have benefits for some of the outcomes.
