OBJECTIVE To define the indications for tracheotomy in patients requiring prolonged intubation (>1 week) in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). DESIGN Retrospective chart review and follow-up telephone survey. SETTING A tertiary care center PICU. OUTCOME MEASURE Tracheotomy or extubation. PATIENTS All patients older than 30 days in the PICU intubated for longer than 1 week between 1997 and 1999. RESULTS During the study, 63 total admissions required intubation for longer than 1… Expand
Tracheostomy in Pediatric Intensive Care Unit: When and Where?
TLDR
Although the timing of trachostomy has to be determined for each individual patient, three weeks of ventilation seems to be a suitable period for tracheostomy. Expand
Use of tracheostomy in the PICU among patients requiring prolonged mechanical ventilation
TLDR
There is significant variation in both the frequency and time to trachostomy between the studied PICUs for patients requiring prolonged mechanical ventilation; among those who received a tracheostomy, the majority did so after two or more weeks of mechanical ventilation. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of the results suggests that a longer duration of ventilation prior to tracheostomy is associated with increased ICU morbidities and length of stay. Expand
Pediatric tracheotomy: a 30-year experience.
TLDR
Over 30 years, a shift in the indications of pediatric tracheotomies with an increasing number of procedures performed for prolonged ventilation was found, and tracheotomy remains a valid and safe option for pediatric patients. Expand
Decannulation and Outcome following Pediatric Tracheostomy
TLDR
Tracheobronchial toilet as a tracheostomy indication and both trauma and neurologic conditions as admission diagnoses were statistically significant independent variables that predicted earlier decannulation on multivariate analysis. Expand
Tracheostomy in Pediatric Intensive Care Unit: Experience from Eastern India
TLDR
Although the timing of tracheostomy is not fixed, two weeks time is reasonable and it can be done safely at the bedside in pediatric intensive care. Expand
Factors affecting tracheostomy in critically ill paediatric patients in Japan: a data-based analysis
TLDR
This is the first report to use a large-scale registry of critically ill paediatric patients in Japan to describe the interrelated factors of tracheostomies, and chronic conditions, chromosomal anomaly, admission due to respiratory failure, or treatment for post-CPA resuscitation all had the possibility to be risk factors for trachostomy. Expand
Risk factors and outcomes of tracheostomy after prolonged mechanical ventilation in pediatric patients with heart disease
TLDR
Although the mortality rate of patients with and those without tracheostomy were not significantly different, the baseline illness severity might be different, and further studies that adjust for patient factors, such as disease severity, are needed to determine the effect of trachostomy on patient outcomes. Expand
Tracheostomy in Infants and Children
TLDR
There is a recognized need for improvement and coordination of care of pediatric patients with tracheostomy, and the pertinent literature regarding quality improvement initiatives for trachostomy care is reviewed, including review of the recently established Global Trachesostomy Collaborative.

Risk Factors for Neonatal Acquired Subglottic Stenosis
TLDR
It is concluded that endotracheal intubation is an appropriate means of long-term airway management in neonates hospitalized in a pediatric intensive care unit, providing other known risk factors are minimized. Expand
Tracheotomy in infants and young children: The changing perspective 1970–1985
TLDR
Improvements in medical management resulted in prolonged survival of children with multiple abnormalities and resulted in more prolonged tracheotomies, and basic fundamentals of pediatric tracheotomy management remain unchanged. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that starplasty reduces the incidence of major complications and death, and its only drawback seems to be persistent tracheocutaneous fistula. Expand
Intubation of critically ill patients.
TLDR
Physicians who care for critically ill patients should be familiar with these recent developments and concepts in airway management. Expand
A comparative analysis of endotracheal intubation in neonates, children and adults: Complications, prevention and treatment
TLDR
The use of endotracheal tube to provide a prolonged airway and as an adjunct to artificial ventilation continues to be a controversial subject and primary and secondary tracheostomies were evaluated as to mortality, morbidity, and complications. Expand

TLDR
Prolonged intubation on its own does not appear to be an important factor in the production of severe laryngeal injury nor, therefore, the subsequent complications such as subglottic stenosis. Expand
Untoward sequelae of prolonged intubation
TLDR
After reviewing the records of 372 consecutive patients intubated over an 18‐month period, an increased frequency of laryngeal sequelae following prolonged endotracheal intubation is observed in the diabetic female patient and it is suggested that early tracheostomy should be considered in these individuals when the use of prolonged intubations is anticipated.

TLDR
A series of 200 patients having endotracheal intubation between 2 and 24 days were studied prospectively and showed clear trends in survival and morbidity. Expand
