Surgical incision of the trachea.
Congenital structural abnormalities of the respiratory system.
Surgical formation of an opening into the trachea through the neck, or the opening so created.
Congenital malformation characterized by MICROGNATHIA or RETROGNATHIA; GLOSSOPTOSIS and CLEFT PALATE. The mandibular abnormalities often result in difficulties in sucking and swallowing. The syndrome may be isolated or associated with other syndromes (e.g., ANDERSEN SYNDROME; CAMPOMELIC DYSPLASIA). Developmental mis-expression of SOX9 TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR gene on chromosome 17q and its surrounding region is associated with the syndrome.
RESPIRATORY MUSCLE contraction during INHALATION. The work is accomplished in three phases: LUNG COMPLIANCE work, that required to expand the LUNGS against its elastic forces; tissue resistance work, that required to overcome the viscosity of the lung and chest wall structures; and AIRWAY RESISTANCE work, that required to overcome airway resistance during the movement of air into the lungs. Work of breathing does not refer to expiration, which is entirely a passive process caused by elastic recoil of the lung and chest cage. (Guyton, Textbook of Medical Physiology, 8th ed, p406)
Techniques for effecting the transition of the respiratory-failure patient from mechanical ventilation to spontaneous ventilation, while meeting the criteria that tidal volume be above a given threshold (greater than 5 ml/kg), respiratory frequency be below a given count (less than 30 breaths/min), and oxygen partial pressure be above a given threshold (PaO2 greater than 50mm Hg). Weaning studies focus on finding methods to monitor and predict the outcome of mechanical ventilator weaning as well as finding ventilatory support techniques which will facilitate successful weaning. Present methods include intermittent mandatory ventilation, intermittent positive pressure ventilation, and mandatory minute volume ventilation.
Devices which are very resistant to wear and may be used over a long period of time. They include items such as wheelchairs, hospital beds, artificial limbs, etc.

Any method of artificial breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2).
Advanced and highly specialized care provided to medical or surgical patients whose conditions are life-threatening and require comprehensive care and constant monitoring. It is usually administered in specially equipped units of a health care facility.
The cartilaginous and membranous tube descending from the larynx and branching into the right and left main bronchi.

Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.
The organ of sight constituting a pair of globular organs made up of a three-layered roughly spherical structure specialized for receiving and responding to light.
Bleeding within the SKULL, including hemorrhages in the brain and the three membranes of MENINGES. The escape of blood often leads to the formation of HEMATOMA in the cranial epidural, subdural, and subarachnoid spaces.
Bleeding from the vessels of the retina.
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).

A case of thyroid cancer involving the trachea: treatment by partial tracheal resection and repair with a latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap. (1/158)

A 65 year-old man had undergone left thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer. The cancer had directly invaded the cervical esophagus and trachea and the patient was referred to our hospital for radical resection and reconstruction. Cervical computed tomography showed a mass at the left-posterior wall of the trachea. Cervical esophagectomy, resection of the left half of the trachea (6 x 3 cm) including seven rings and cervical lymph node dissection were performed. The tracheal defect was covered by a latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap. The patient did not lose vocal function and remains alive and well 3 years after surgery without any evidence of recurrence. Latissimus dorsi muscle flap coverage of tracheal defects seems to be a useful technique in the combined resection of the trachea.  (+info)

Anesthesia in the Yom Kippur war. (2/158)

The role of the anesthetist in the treatment of battle casualties is discussed in the light of personal experience in a field hospital and in the rear during the Yom Kippur War of October 1973. Resuscitation and intensive care both before and after evacuation play an important part in reducing mortality, and the importance of providing adequate facilities for these functions in the battle area as well as at the base is emphasized.  (+info)

Postoperative management after thymectomy. (3/158)

This paper reports a retrospective study of the preoperative and postoperative management of 28 patients who underwent thymectomy between 1956 and 1973. Patients who received postoperative artificial ventilation were compared with the group who did not with respect to sex, age, severity of disease, preoperative vital capacity, and thymic histology. Evidence is presented that postoperative artificial ventilation is required when the preoperative vital capacity with the patient on optimum anticholinesterase treatment is less than 2 litres. Additional features associated with a probable need for artificial ventilation were the presence of a thymoma, bulbar symptoms, especially dysphagia, and age over 50 years. These should be taken into account in any patient whose vital capacity is close to the critical level of 2 litres. When postoperative ventilation was required it was usually necessary for 12 days or more, and tracheostomy should therefore be done at or before thymectomy. Most patients in this series received the same dose of anticholinesterases after operation as before it and no evidence was found of a sudden decrease in requirements for anticholinesterase therapy. Two patients did not, and in them a myasthenic crisis was precipitated. We propose that the preoperative drug regimen can be continued in the immediate postthymectomy period, allowing selection of patients for tracheostomy and artificial ventilation primarily on the basis of the preoperative vital capacity.  (+info)

Acquired subglottic stenosis caused by methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus that produce epidermal cell differentiation inhibitor. (4/158)

Local infection of the trachea in intubated neonates is one of the main risk factors for development of acquired subglottic stenosis, although its role in the pathogenesis is unclear. Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is often the cause of critical illness in neonatal patients. Two cases are reported of acquired subglottic stenosis following bacterial infection of the trachea, suggesting an association with the staphylococcal exotoxin, epidermal cell differentiation inhibitor (EDIN). EDIN-producing MRSA were isolated from purulent tracheal secretions from both infants. Acquired subglottic stenosis in both cases was probably caused by delayed wound healing as the result of EDIN inhibition of epithelial cell migration.  (+info)

Depression of sublingual temperature by cold saliva. (5/158)

Sublingual and oesophageal temperatures were compared at various air temperatures in 16 subjects. In warm air (25-44 degrees C) sublingual temperatures stabilized within plus or minus 0-45 degrees C of oesophageal temperatures, but in air at room temperature (18-24 degrees C) they were sometimes as much as 1-1 degrees C below and in cold air (5-10 degrees C) as much as 4-4 degrees C below oesophageal readings. The sublingual-oesophageal temperature difference in cold air was greatly reduced by keeping the face warm, but it was not reduced in two patients breathing through tracheostomies and thereby eliminating cold air flow from the nose and pharynx. Parotid saliva temperature was low and saliva flow high during exposure, and cold saliva seemed to be mainly responsible for the erratic depression of sublingual temperature in the cold. These results indicate hazards in the casual use of sublingual temperatures, and indicate that external heat may have to be supplied to enable them to give reliable clinical assessments of body temperature.  (+info)

Potencies of doxapram and hypoxia in stimulating carotid-body chemoreceptors and ventilation in anesthetized cats. (6/158)

The effects of doxapram on carotid chemoreceptor activity and on ventilation (phrenic-nerve activity) were tested before and after denervation of the peripheral chemoreceptors in cats. Doxapram was found to be a potent stimulus to the carotid chemoreceptors; the stimulation produced by 1.0 mg/kg doxapram, iv, equalled that produced by a Pao2 of 38 torr. Doxapram also increased phrenic-nerve activity in doses as low as 0.2 mg/kg, iv. After denervation of the peripheral chemoreceptors, doxapram in doses as large as 6 mg/kg failed to stimulate ventilation. It is concluded that (in anesthetized cats) doxapram in doses of less than 6 mg/kg increases ventilation by direct stimulation of the carotid, and, probably, the aortic, chemoreceptors, not by a direct effect on the medullary respiratory center.  (+info)

Tracheal size following tracheostomy with cuffed tracheostomy tubes: an experimental study. (7/158)

In view of the severe damage caused by unyielding, low residual volume cuffs, various modifications to the cuff of an intratracheal tube have been introduced. The merits of two low-pressure cuffs were assessed in an experimental study in dogs; both cuffs produced little visible damage to the tracheal wall in dogs intubated continuously over a two-week period. A modified technique of producing tantalum tracheobronchograms without distrubing the mucous blanket or traumatizing the tracheal wall is described. These tantalum radiological studies demonstrated a progressive temporary increase in size of the trachea at cuff level over the period of intubation with these cuffs. The implications of such a progressive weakness occurring in the tracheal muscle are discussed.  (+info)

Laryngeal muscle response to phasic and tonic upper airway pressure and flow. (8/158)

The hypothesis that respiratory modulation due to upper airway (UA) pressure and flow is dependent on stimulus modality and respiratory phase-specific activation was assessed in anesthetized, tracheotomized, spontaneously breathing piglets. Negative pressure and flow applied to the isolated UA at room or body temperature during inspiration only enhanced posterior cricoarytenoid muscle activity from that present without UA pressure and flow (baseline) by 15--20%. Time shifting the onset of UA flow relative to tracheal flow decreased this enhancement. The same enhancement was observed with oscillatory or constant airflow. UA positive pressure and flow at room or body temperature applied during expiration only enhanced thyroarytenoid muscle activity from baseline by 50--160%. The same enhancement was observed with oscillatory or constant airflow at body temperature. Constant positive pressure and flow enhanced thyroarytenoid muscle activity more than oscillatory pressure and flow at room temperature. We conclude that the respiratory modulation of UA afferents is processed in a phase-specific fashion and is dependent on stimulus modality (tonic vs. phasic).  (+info)

To our knowledge, this is the first multi-institutional study in children with tracheotomy reporting differences in clinical outcomes and hospital resource use based on the childs comorbid clinical conditions. Children with upper airway anomaly experienced lower in-hospital mortality rates at tracheotomy placement. Children with NI experienced both higher in-hospital mortality rates and greater hospital resource use 5 years after tracheotomy. These findings remained significant after controlling for important cofactors including ventilation support, use of postacute care facilities after hospital discharge, age, and gender.. This is the also the first study to document the substantial hospital use of children 5-years after tracheotomy. With an average length of stay exceeding 8 days, admissions for children with tracheotomy rank among the longest hospitalizations experienced by all children, including those with severe sepsis, Kawasaki disease, and hydrocephalus.32, 35-42 The impact of these ...
A tracheotomy scar revision is performed to remove an unsightly scar.A tracheotomy scar is formed after a tracheotomy tube is removed. Some scars heal very well and are unable to be seen. Other scars may be large and tether the skin to the deeper throat muscles making swallowing and speaking difficult.A tracheotomy scar revision is performed under local anesthesia. The old scar is removed and the remaining skin is sutured together. This is done with a plastics closure using fine instruments and small needles.
BACKGROUND: Whether early percutaneous tracheotomy in patients who require prolonged mechanical ventilation can shorten mechanical ventilation duration and lower mortality remains controversial.. OBJECTIVE: To compare the outcomes of severely ill patients who require prolonged mechanical ventilation randomly assigned to early percutaneous tracheotomy or prolonged intubation.. DESIGN: Prospective, randomized, controlled, single-center trial (ClinicalTrials.gov registration number: NCT00347321).. SETTING: Academic center.. PATIENTS: 216 adults requiring mechanical ventilation 4 or more days after cardiac surgery.. INTERVENTION: Immediate early percutaneous tracheotomy or prolonged intubation with tracheotomy 15 days after randomization.. MEASUREMENTS: The primary end point was the number of ventilator-free days during the first 60 days after randomization. Secondary outcomes included 28-, 60-, or 90-day mortality rates; durations of mechanical ventilation, intensive care unit stay, and ...
Pope John Paul II underwent a tracheotomy Thursday night to ease breathing problems, a serious turn for the worse in the health of the already fragile, 84-year-old spiritual leader of the worlds 1 billion Roman Catholics. [...] on Thursday evening, the Vatican announced that doctors, in response to an acute breathing insufficiency, had performed a tracheotomy -- that is, cut a hole at the base of the neck directly into the windpipe. The Holy Father was informed and gave his consent, the popes chief spokesman, Joaquin Navarro-Valls, himself a physician, said in a statement. Despite the operations apparent success, both the procedure and the underlying conditions that made it necessary seem likely to intensify questions about the popes ability to continue to lead the church. Because the cut is made below the voice box, medical experts say, people with tracheotomies cannot speak. People with Parkinsons disease are very sensitive to breathing problems, and any spasm in his throat, even

Tracheotomy and tracheostomy is a surgery on the neck to open a direct path by cutting a hole in the trachea (windpipe). They are performed by paramedics, veterinarians, emergency physicians, and surgeons. Both surgical and percutaneous techniques are now widely used. Tracheostomy was written about in ancient Egyptian tablets,[1] but, in the 12th century, Ibn Zuhr described the first correct tracheotomy operation for people who were suffocating (could not breathe).[2] The current tracheostomy was described in 1909 by Chevalier Jackson, an American doctor. ...

While non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is a recommended technique for weaning intubated patients after acute hypercapnic respiratory failure, little evidence exists for NIV as a technique for weaning tracheotomized patients undergoing prolonged invasive ventilation (IV). Methods: we prospectively studied a group of tracheotomized and chronically ventilated patients admitted to a weaning centre who could be suitable to decannulation and conversion to NIV because of absence of airway stenosis, normal swallowing function, preserved cough mechanism but unable to sustain a spontaneous breathing for more than 16 hours without increasing PaCO2. Data collected for follow-up were: demographic, functional, severity score (SAPSII), need to re-tracheotomy, survival, hospital admissions/year, maintenance of adequate gas exchange. The Fisher exact test and the log-rank test have been employed for statistical analysis. Results: 176 patients with tracheotomy and prolonged IV were evaluated; 26 patients (14 men) ...

Endoscopic debridement of obstructing laryngotracheal carcinoma with the microdebrider is an alternative to CO2 laser excision or emergency tracheotomy. This is a retrospective study of 27 patients with advanced laryngotracheal carcinoma treated with the microdebrider for airway obstruction from 1998 to 2002. In 26 patients, the carcinoma was debrided successfully and tracheotomy was safely avoided. Postoperative bleeding was encountered in 1 patient with a coagulopathy. Two of the patients later required tracheotomy during radiotherapy secondary to radiation-induced laryngeal edema. Both were safely managed without acute airway compromise. Laryngeal debridement provided up to 3 months of stable airway until definitive oncological treatment was performed. Endoscopic microdebridement of obstructing carcinoma is a relatively simple and highly accurate approach to restoring a stable airway. It provides extra time for preoperative oncological, psychological, and nutritional planning ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Comparison of postoperative cardiopulmonary examinations and chest radiographs to detect pulmonary complications after adult tracheotomy. AU - Park, S. Y.. AU - Smith, R. V.. PY - 1999/1/1. Y1 - 1999/1/1. N2 - OBJECTIVE: To prospectively evaluate the effectiveness of clinical cardiopulmonary examination compared with that of chest radiography in detecting postoperative pulmonary complications after tracheotomy in adults. METHODS: One hundred consecutive patients undergoing tracheotomy were evaluated. Pulmonary complications were recorded, and the effectiveness of the physical examination was compared with that of the chest x-ray in detecting these complications. Patient age, sex, diagnosis, urgency of the procedure, and anesthetic technique were evaluated to determine any relationship to postoperative complications. RESULTS: Of the 100 patients, 87 patients underwent postoperative chest radiography, and all patients had postoperative cardiopulmonary examinations. One patient (1%) ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Failure analysis in sleep apnea surgery. AU - McMains, K. Christopher. AU - Terris, David J.. PY - 2005/1/1. Y1 - 2005/1/1. N2 - Guilleminault et al. (1) coined the term obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) to describe patients with disrupted nocturnal breathing. In 1969, Kuhlo et al. (2) performed the first tracheotomy to bypass upper airway obstruction, which represented the first definitive surgical intervention in OSA. In 1979, Fujita et al. (3) introduced uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) for treatment of OSA. In 1981, Sullivan et al. (4) published the first study of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for nonsurgical treatment of OSA. As with tracheotomy, CPAP eliminates excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and cardiopulmonary sequelae of OSA (5) including normalization of blood pressure (6). Only complete compliance with CPAP was shown to be sufficient to derive treatment benefits from this therapy (7). Problematically, incomplete compliance with CPAP was prevalent (8-10). ...

A 62-year-old man came to our attention after an operation in a small dental outpatient clinic where only a single dentist was working. The man was showing complications after insertion of a dental implant in the anterior segments of the mandible. Bleeding led to a slow swelling of the neck with airway obstruction. Only an immediate intervention by a mobile emergency unit and prompt tracheal intubation avoided death by asphyxia. The patient was then transferred to our hospital. We inspected the patient and we performed a CT scan that showed complete airway obstruction. First, we performed a tracheotomy in order to ensure the airway patency and then we identified the source of bleeding: the mylohyoid artery placed anomalously close to the mandible. After clamping and tying the artery, the bleeding resolved. One day after the procedure, the tracheotomy was closed; the patient was discharged after 3 days.. ...
Way back in 2000 I was very ill with Pneumonia resulting as a complication from Pancreatitis. I was in intensive care and high dependency wards for months and for most of the time had a tracheotomy. A tracheotomy, for those unfamiliar with the procedure, is where someone, preferably a doctor, makes a hole in your neck and feeds a tube into your lungs for air to be drawn through, or, as in my case, for someone to stick a suction tube in and vacuum your lungs for gunk. Having a nervous F2 wielding a scalpel at your throat while you are passing out from lack of Oxygen rates pretty low on my list of things to do again. The advantage of the cough machine is that it is totally non-invasive. It removes secretions without the need for someone sticking a plastic straw through an unnatural orifice in your neck. Im not sure how much such machines cost but they must be cheaper than spending days, weeks or months in hospital ...
RESULTS: Conventional tracheotomy was performed in 7 patients. We performed tracheotomy during NPPV with local anesthesia in 13 patients. All but 3 patients had risk factors for difficult intubation. Hospital stay was 23.3 ± 10.3 d in the conventional group and 25.3 ± 12.9 d in the NPPV group (p = 0.87). The number of pneumonias was higher in the conventional-tracheotomy group (4 vs 1, p = 0.03). ...

1891: Concerns of Intubation: By the late 19th century many of the same concerns physicians have today about intubation were considered. One such concern being the ulceration of tissue due to pressure of the tube set upon it for a long period of time. Tubes were generally taken out after six days with success, although in some cases were left in 12 days or longer. Dr. Rank, a German physician, ultimately recommended removal of the tube after 10 days, and if necessary, the physician should consider tracheotomy. Some physicians recommended extubation after the 5th day, which would be in line with modern protocols. Feeding the patient was also a concern, and was either done with soft foods or liquids, or by nasalgastric tube. It was recommended that if the tube was accidentally spit up that the nurse take advantage of the moment to try feeding the patient prior to re-introducing the tube (if the tube was still needed).

My father has been battling throat cancer since January. He had surgery in February to remove the tumor, and there was one still on his voicebox. He went through chemotherapy and radiation. In August, he was rushed in for an emergency tracheotomy because his throat was swelling shut. We were told it was from the radiation. When they did the thracheotomy, they found a tumor on the side and back of his throat. We had to wait almost a month for surgery, and last Tuesday, they opened him up to do a laryngectomy and reconstruct his esophogus, saw the cancer had gone onto his spine, and closed him back up. They told us we just need to make him comfortable now for the next months to a year that he has left ...

In arthroscopy, an endoscope is inserted into a joint using a small incision. It is performed to examine and treat various orthopedic disorders. It is used for conditions such as torn cartilage, ACL reconstruction, torn surface cartilage, and trimming of damaged cartilage. In bronchoscopy a practitioner will use endoscopy for viewing the inside of airways for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes. A bronchoscope is used in this procedure, which is inserted into the airways either through the nose or mouth, or sometimes through a tracheotomy. Colonoscopy lets a practitioner view inside the large intestine. Due to this procedure the doctor can detect any abnormal growths, ulcers, or inflamed tissue. Apart from these procedures there are other endoscopy procedures such as cystoscopy, laparoscopy, thoracotomy, mediastinoscopy, etc ...

Recent evolution in extracorporeal supports allows bridging to lung or heart and lung transplant in a consistent number of cases. However, long term results of these transplants have been rarely reported. Aim of present study was to analyse early and long term results in a small n° of lung transplant recipients (LTR) which have been bridged with extracorporeal devices. Nine patients (8 males, mean age39.5) have been transplanted (4SL, 2DL, 3HL). Transplant indications were: UIP (5), PAH (3), bronchiectasis (1). This latter patient (HL) died 3 days after surgery of MOF due to sepsia. 8 patients are alive at a mean of 16 months (min 3.5 - max 33).. Early complications included: Re-op for bleeding (1/8) CRYMINE (5/8), slow weaning with need of tracheotomy (7/8), graft infections (1/8), acute renal failure with need for renal replacement therapy in ICU (4/8).. Medium long term-complications included: AR,2 (2/8), CMV pneumonia/reactivation (4/8), Thrombosis (2/8), EBV related haemophagocytic ...

The Final Days of Pope John Paul II. Pope John Paul II emerged from a week-long Lenten retreat on 20 February 2005. He was still suffering the effects of his bout with the flu, for which he had been hospitalized February 1-10 at the Gemelli Polyclinic. Nonetheless, his Angelus message showed that he remained intent on completing his Petrine mission in service to the unity of the Church.
