Abstract

Trauma patients are frequently admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) requiring intubation and prolonged ventilator support. These interventions are necessary and life-saving but also carry with them potential complications that include but are not limited to laryngeal and pulmonary trauma, hemodynamic compromise, and pneumonia. For these reasons, patients should be liberated from a ventilator as soon as feasibly possible. This can be accomplished either by extubation or tracheostomy.
