Early Tracheostomy in the Intensive Care Unit: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Critical care patients sometimes have difficulty being weaned from the ventilator, and mechanical ventilation/intubation is associated with a host of complications. Recent studies suggest that transition to tracheostomy within 10 days may have better outcomes than longer-term oral intubation. The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of recent literature on outcomes for early tracheostomy.
