Acute complications of artificial airways

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


In conclusion, though there has been a dramatic reduction in the acute complications of artificial airways in the last hundred years, it remains crucial for the intensivist/anesthesiologist to have an implicit understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the process of ETI. As new techniques such as PDT are introduced, we must investigate their utility compared with the current standard of care in the most rigorous fashion. Additionally, as many of the complications of ETI can lead to increases in morbidity and mortality, prompt diagnosis and management are essential.
