   Introduction Top


Percutaneous tracheostomy (PT) has gained an increasing acceptance as an alternative to the conventional surgical tracheostomy (ST). In experienced hands, and with proper patient selection, it is safe, easy and quick. Percutaneous tracheostomy has become a well-established procedure on the intensive care unit (ICU) for patients requiring prolonged invasive mechanical ventilation (MV). Tracheostomy offers a number of potential benefits such as increased patient comfort, reduced sedation requirement, and a decrease in dead space, all of which may aid the weaning process.
