A medical bulletin issued by Belle Vue Clinic, where she has been admitted since December 23 following a respiratory tract infection, said Sen is on BIPAP therapy through an endotracheal tube
after which her oxygen saturation level in blood and other ancillary blood reports are satisfactory.
Damage to the trachea during intubation is inevitable as a result of the contact between the endotracheal tube
and the trachea.
Specific variables possibly related to risk included the length of the ICU stay, the patient's body position (supine or not),the use of mechanical ventilation, the use of an endotracheal tube
, the length of ventilation, the use of sedation, and the use ofa feeding tube.

Microaspiration refers to aspiration of fluid, secretions and other materials that have leaked past the endotracheal tube
cuff and into the lungs - a common problem in intubation that may lead to pulmonary complications, including ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and post-operative pneumonia.
Whilst in this study the difference between groups in atelectasis and endotracheal tube
occlusion did not reach statistical significance, these were lower in the NSI group.
0mm (internal diameter [ID]) cuffed, sterile endotracheal tube
, and the nonrebreathing anesthesia system was connected to the air sac cannula.
An initial attempt to pass a cuffed endotracheal tube

If possible, awake tracheal dilation under bronchoscopic guidance with a small endotracheal tube
should be performed.
2002), we used a dosimeter-piston ventilator system with a Raindrop nebulizer (Nelcor Puritan Bennett, Carlsbad, CA) to deliver the aerosols directly into the endotracheal tube
only during inspiration at a tidal volume of 500 mL and a rate of 20 breaths/minute.
This is because the safety of general anesthesia hinges on the correct placement of the endotracheal tube
