The cuff-leak test was widely used for the prediction of post-extubation stridor, but controversial results limit its clinical application. The current study used real-time ultrasonography to evaluate the air-leak and hypothesised that the air-column width, measured by ultrasonography, may be correlated to the development of post-extubation stridor. From June 1, 2001 to March 1, 2002, a total of 51 planned extubations in 51 consecutively intubated patients were included. All of the patients… CONTINUE READING
