Tracheal Intubation
2013-04-30 13:26:36

Tracheal intubation (commonly known as intubation) is the placement of a flexible plastic tube into the trachea in order to maintain an open airway or to serve as a conduit through which to administer oxygen or other drugs. It is commonly performed in emergency situations and critically ill or injured patients, but intubation is also used in patients who will be undergoing a lengthy surgery that requires them to be under anesthesia for a significant number of hours. In order to intubate,...

ECMO comes with many serious risks and is only used in severe cases of cardiac or respiratory failure...
