Comparison of Standard and Endoscope Assisted Endotracheal Intubation The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government In emergencies, a paramedic may need to perform intubation to save a person’s life. Emergency intubation can have some risks.
Awake tracheal intubation (ATI) has a high success rate and a low‐risk profile and has been cited as the gold standard in airway management for a predicted difficult airway. However, ATI is reported to be used in as few as 0.2% of all tracheal intubations in the UK 1. There are barriers preventing broad uptake and use of awake techniques for. The standard use of high-volume low-pressure cuffs has markedly decreased the incidence of this complication.  Tubes with high-pressure cuffs are obsolete and should be avoided. Summary Orotracheal intubation is the mainstay of definitive airway management. In the comatose patient, it is usually accomplished rapidly and without difficulty Using a linear array transducer placed in the suprasternal notch combined with lung ultrasonography, ultrasound has been used at the point of care to confirm endotracheal intubation before a definitive chest film can be taken. Sonographic features of tracheal intubation include 3: one hyperechoic air-mucosal interface with comet-tail artifacts. Tracheal intubation is the gold standard for airway protection, ensuring the trachea and lungs are protected from aspiration of gastric contents, and enabling delivery of oxygen and removal of carbon dioxide through ventilation (Thomas and Moss 2014). Securing the airway is crucial to resuscitation and why i Learning and Retention of Tracheal Intubation by Medical Students: Comparison of Standard Intubation Teaching Against Video-guided Intubation Teaching.

Before Intubation: The anesthesia cart located in the operating room has all the The standard of . care is that blood pressure needs to be taken a minimum of every five minutes during surgery. There is also a clip attached to a patient's finger that checks the amount of oxygen in the. Background and Aims: Optimization of patient's head and neck position for the best laryngeal view is the most important step before laryngoscopy and intubation. The objective of this prospective crossover study was to determine the differences, if any, between the gold standard sniffing position (SP) and the further head elevation (HE) (neck flexion) with regard to the incidence of difficult. By discovering the ways in which general anesthetics do more than induce sleep, researchers open up opportunities to develop improved drugs for… Rapid sequence induction and intubation (RSII) for anesthesia is a technique designed to minimize the chance of pulmonary aspiration in patients who are at higher than normal risk. The usual, nonrapid sequence of induction and intubation for anesthesia consists of administration of an induction agent, proof of the ability to mask ventilate. Mechanical ventilation can partially or fully replace spontaneous breathing. Its main purpose is to improved gas exchange and decreased work of breathing by delivering preset concentrations of oxygen at an adequate tidal volume. An artificial airway (endotracheal tube) or tracheostomy is needed to a client requiring mechanical ventilation
Which one is the optimum to become a new standard of care? Given that device-specific proficiency is critical for successful use of any intubation device, if videolaryngoscopes are used as routine intubation devices, do anesthesiologists need to learn and achieve clinical competence for all devices A total of 208 patients were included, with 104 (50%) in the restricted group (< 30 mL/kg) and 104 in the standard group (≥ 30 mL/kg). No difference in intubation incidence was detected between the two groups, with 36 patients (35%) in the restricted group and 33 (32%) in the standard group (adjusted OR, 0.75; 95% CI, 0.41-1.36; P = .34) intubated Intubation is a standard procedure that involves passing a tube into a person's airway. Doctors often perform before surgery or in emergencies to give medicine or help a person breathe Fiberoptic intubation (FOI) is the gold standard for managing difficult airways. Awake FOI preserves the respiratory drive and maintains spontaneous ventilation.

Teleflex's Rusch ® and Sheridan ® Brands of standard intubation products provides anesthesia professionals with a full range of options. We offer endotracheal tubes for short or long-term intubation, from high to low-volume, cuffed or uncuffed, so you have the right airway.
Succinylcholine remains the drug of choice for satisfactory rapid-sequence tracheal intubation. It was first described 50 years ago (1, 2). In early studies, doses averaging less than 0.5 mg/kg were usually administered (total 10-50mg). Maybe as a consequence, succinylcholine in 1 mg/kg has been established as the usual dose for intubation. NYP Process for Using Intubation Bags for Suspected or Confirmed COVID-19 Patients (as of March 23nd, 2020) This is the NYP standard process for creating and maintaining COVID-19 PPE intubation bags across NYP. This process applies for all affected units (ED, med-surg, ICUs, L&D, ORs). This pertains to intubation bags stored o . Confirm proper placement. This can be done through auscultation of bilateral breath sounds, watching for equal chest rise, and end tidal CO2 (the gold standard). Next is securing the tube, placing on the ventilator, obtaining a confirmatory chest x-ray, and determining a post-intubation sedation plan 1 Zaouter C, Calderon J, Hemmerling TM.

Comparison of intubation success of videolaryngoscopy versus direct laryngoscopy in the difficult airway using high-fidelity simulation. Simul Awake Intubation can save your butt! It requires forethought and humility-you must be able to say to yourself, I am not sure I will be able to successfully intubate this patient. However, the payoff for this thought process is enormous. You can attempt an intubation on a difficult airway with very few downsides
. But ER never made it seems easy; it showed just how hard it is for medical students to successfully intubate a patient due to fear and naivety. And for real-life doctors and medical practitioners, learning the art of airway management is just as. Emergency intubation checklist and other cognitive aids should be used during emergency airway management. Continuous wave-form end-tidal CO 2 should be used to confirm correct ETT position. Background. Emergency airway management is an uncommon procedure performed on unwell children. Adverse events are common, resulting in cardiac arrest in 1.
Page 1 of 6 Standardized Procedure Manual SP 3-03 Endotracheal Intubation I. PURPOSE A. This standardized procedure is designed to establish guidelines that will enable the Advanced Life Support (ALS) Registered Nurse (RN) and Advanced Life Support (ALS) Respiratory Therapist (RT) to perform endotracheal intubation while on transport Difficult intubation: need for more than 3 intubation attempts by a trained provider or attempts at intubation that last longer than 10 minutes. Unfortunately, these definitions describe after the fact. Although it is sometimes true that you will be surprised by a difficult airway during intubation, usually there are warning signs. Recognizing. When taking the patient's medical history, the subject is questioned about any significant signs or symptoms, such as difficulty in speaking or difficulty in breathing. These may suggest obstructing lesions in various locations within the upper airway, larynx, or tracheobronchial tree. A history of previous surgery (e.g., previous cervical fusion), injury, radiation therapy, or tumors involving the head, neck and upper chest can also provide clues to a potentially difficult intubation. Previous experiences with tracheal intubation, especially difficult intubation, intubation for prolonged duration (e.g., intensive care unit) or prior tracheotomy are also noted. Strategy for intubation by direct laryngoscopy, no predicted airway problem, no risk of regurgitation Each step of the guideline is described. At preoperative evaluation the anaesthetist has decided that tracheal intubation is the correct way of protecting/maintaining the airway, and has not predicted any significant problems with either.
Between 1945 and 1952, optical engineers built upon the earlier work of Rudolph Schindler (1888–1968), developing the first gastrocamera. In 1964, optical fiber technology was applied to one of these early gastrocameras to produce the first flexible fiberoptic endoscope. Initially used in upper GI endoscopy, this device was first used for laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation by Peter Murphy, an English anesthetist, in 1967. The concept of using a stylet for replacing or exchanging orotracheal tubes was introduced by Finucane and Kupshik in 1978, using a central venous catheter. Background: Rapid Sequence Intubation (RSI) is the standard definitive airway management in the pediatric emergency department (PED). There are limited data describing time to intubation (TTI), adverse events (AE), and process variation for RSI in the PED. Prior studies demonstrate the first pass intubation success rate (FPISR) is between 26-85% and, the RSI-associated AE rate is between 20-61. There was no statistical difference in time to intubation between the two different methods of intubation in the overall group or any sub-groups (Table). Participants rated the relative ease of intubation as 7.3/10 for the standard technique and 7.6/10 for the preloaded technique (p=0.53, 95% confidence interval of the difference −0.97 to 0.50)

Endotracheal intubation is the approved way of providing breathing support to COVID-19 coronavirus disease patients as of this article's update in early April, 2020.. Non-invasive mechanical ventilation like CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines used for sleep apnea are not good for COVID-19 patients, according to clinical guidelines from the American Society of Anesthesiologists Sinusitis is an inflammation of the paranasal sinuses or hollows in the face that lead to the nose. It is caused by infections of a fluid or mucus…Spontaneous ventilation has been traditionally performed with an inhalational agent (i.e. gas induction or inhalational induction using halothane or sevoflurane) however it can also be performed using intravenous anaesthesia (e.g. propofol, ketamine or dexmedetomidine). SponTaneous Respiration using IntraVEnous anaesthesia and High-flow nasal oxygen (STRIVE Hi) is an open airway technique that uses an upwards titration of propofol which maintains ventilation at deep levels of anaesthesia. It has been used in airway surgery as an alternative to tracheal intubation.
In the operating room, doctors usually use intubation to help a person breathe while they are under anesthesia. There has been little research published on the Airtraq laryngoscope. A small manikin study of 25 anaesthetists comparing skill acquisition with the Airtraq vs a standard Macintosh laryngoscope reported a shorter time to intubation with the Airtraq (9.5 vs 14.2 s) .A further study of 40 medical students with no prior airway management experience reported that in comparison with a Macintosh.

When the person no longer has difficulty breathing, the doctor will remove the tube from the person’s throat. While standard intubation tools like the laryngoscope have a very high success rate, they do fail in some situations. The lightwand is good when things are bad, says John E. Reynolds MD, Associate Professor of Anesthesiology and Neurosurgery. It works in a helicopter, in the dark, on the ground, when the neck is immobile, or the mouth is. Learning intubation technique can be challenging. Fall is the time of year when new students commonly begin to learn how to intubate. My first intubation was one of the first times I literally held someone's life in my hands. The anesthesiologist teaching me tried to not look too anxious as I awkwardly grabbed my laryngoscope blade, fumbled. Unintentional esophageal intubation occurs more frequently in emergency airway management, in critically ill patients, and in patients who suffer cardiac arrest during out-of-hospital paramedic intubation. 18 - 20 In one report, esophageal intubation occurred in 8% of emergency intubation attempts in critically ill patients. 20 In a study of.
However, if a person experiences any of the following symptoms following their procedure, they should let their doctor know immediately, as they could be signs of more serious issues: Appendix A: Table 4. Standard precaution equipment and conditions with corresponding recommendations. Component endotracheal intubation. During aerosol-generating procedures on patients with suspected or proven infections transmitted by respiratory aerosols wear a fit-tested N95 or higher respirator in addition to gloves, gown and face/eye. NewsletterIntubation: Everything you need to knowMedically reviewed by Daniel Murrell, MD on November 15, 2018 — Written by Jenna FletcherWhat is intubation?ProcedureSide effectsRecoverySummaryIntubation is a standard procedure that involves passing a tube into a person’s airway. Doctors often perform before surgery or in emergencies to give medicine or help a person breathe.
Rapid sequence intubation (RSI) is an airway management technique that produces inducing immediate unresponsiveness (induction agent) and muscular relaxation (neuromuscular blocking agent) and is the fastest and most effective means of controlling the emergency airway. the cessation of spontaneous ventilation involves considerable risk if the. Intubation protocols used in this study are much different than standard practices in many places in North America (No stylet, Use of Sellick's maneuver, reversal of rocuronium in CICO, etc) Patients were intubated without the use of a stylet or video laryngoscope which limits the generalization of the results to other out-of-hospital. In most cases, a person will fully recover from intubation within a few hours to days and will have no long-term complications.
INITIAL DOSE: 0.08 to 0.1 mg/kg by IV bolus. -This dose is expected to produce good or excellent nonemergency intubation in 2.5 to 3 minutes. -Neuromuscular blockade lasts 25 to 30 minutes, with recovery to 25% of control at 25 to 40 minutes after injection and recovery to 95% of control at 45 to 65 minutes after injection Many people will experience a sore throat and difficulty swallowing immediately after intubation, but recovery is usually quick, taking several hours to several days depending on the time spent intubated. Etomidate is not a paralytic, it is an IV anaesthetic. An example of a paralytic used for intubation would be Succinylcholine (short-acting, used for rapid sequence inductions) or Rocuronium (intermediate-acting).

There are several different types of intubation. Doctors classify them based on the location of the tube and what it is trying to accomplish. Intubation of an awake patient (typically not done in children) requires anesthesia of the nose and pharynx. A commercial aerosol preparation of benzocaine, tetracaine, butyl aminobenzoate (butamben), and benzalkonium is commonly used. Alternatively, 4% lidocaine can be nebulized and inhaled via face mask. Drugs Mentioned In This Article
In the operating room or another controlled setting, a doctor will typically sedate the person, using an anesthetic. The doctor will then insert an instrument called a laryngoscope into the person’s mouth to aid insertion of the flexible tubing. Tracheal intubation is the gold standard for airway protection, ensuring the trachea and lungs are protected from aspiration of gastric contents, and enabling delivery of oxygen and removal of carbon dioxide through ventilation (Thomas and Moss 2014) This method has been proven safe and effective in EDs over the past 4 decades, and it is considered the standard of care. When administered by experienced, well-trained emergency physicians, use of neuromuscular blocking agents in patients undergoing emergent tracheal intubation is associated with a significant decrease in procedure-related.
Many people feel nauseated and may vomit after waking up from anesthesia. They may also experience temporary confusion or memory loss..3% for the new bougie group, 73.9% for standard bougie, and only 23.9% in the no-bougie group; the differences were statistically significant for all comparisons. In the attempt, the intubation success rate was 8.7% for the new bougie group, 26.1% for standard bougie, and only 43.4% in the no-bougie group Endotracheal (ET) intubation can be hazardous, particularly as patients may have deteriorated rapidly or may have combined respiratory and cardiovascular failure (Shelly and Nightingale, 1999). In such a stressful and potentially life-threatening process, nurses need a clear understanding of their role
For example, some research indicates that emergency tracheal intubation can be risky because of the high-pressure environment and the fact that the individual may not be as stable as a person in an operating theater. ISO 7376:2009 gives general requirements for laryngoscopes used for intubation, and specifies critical dimensions for the handle and lamp of hook-on type laryngoscopes. It also addresses the interchangeability of blades and handles Video laryngoscopes (e.g., GlideScope®) have become standard in many O.R.s and ICUs, based on local preferences, anecdotal experience and some observational trial evidence suggesting video laryngoscopy reduced esophageal intubations and increased first-pass success in the emergency department and ICU, especially for patients with difficult. Intubation and the steps leading up to it are some of the highest-risk moments for COVID-19 spread to healthcare workers and other patients. 1,2 In Wuhan, intubation teams were established to perform multiple intubations per hour while maintaining strict protocols to limit viral exposure . Rosenblatt
Tracheal intubation, usually simply referred to as intubation, is the placement of a flexible plastic tube into the trachea (windpipe) to maintain an open airway or to serve as a conduit through which to administer certain drugs. It is frequently performed in critically injured, ill, or anesthetized patients to facilitate ventilation of the lungs, including mechanical ventilation, and to. Rapid Sequence Intubation (also known as Rapid Sequence Induction, or RSI) is a method of intubating patients who present with issues that make intubation difficult (e.g. gag reflex, clenched jaw, patient combativeness, etc.). Intubation is accomplished by sedating and paralyzing the patient, allowing for easier intubation In critically ill patients, re-intubation is common and may be a high-risk procedure. Anticipating a difficult airway and identifying high-risk patients can allow time for life-saving preparation. Unfortunately, prospective studies have not compared the difficulty or complication rates associated with reintubation in this population. We performed a secondary analysis of a prospective registry.
GlideScope® videolaryngoscopy (GVL) has been shown to improve visualization of the glottis compared to direct laryngoscopy (DL). However, due to the angle of approach to the glottis, intubation can still be challenging. We hypothesized that novice GVL users would be able to intubate faster and easier using an airway introducer (frequently known as a bougie) than with a standard intubating stylet . This video demonstrates how to perform orotracheal intubation. Specific indications ar.. The standard method for intubation is usually effective; it involves passing the scope past the ileocaecal (IC) valve, angulating the tip of the scope towards the IC valve, deflating the caecum. Tracheal Intubation. Tracheal intubation causes a stress response, resulting in increased sympathetic activity that may result in hypertension, tachycardia, and arrhythmias. Endotracheal intubation is the gold standard of airway management. There are several indications for endotracheal intubation,.
What is the standard size for endotracheal or tracheostomy tube adapters. 15 mm external diameter. What is the purpose of the additional side port (Murphy Eye) on most modern endotracheal tubes? While checking a miller and a MacIntosh blade in an intubation tray during an emergency intubation, you find that the miller blade lights but the. intubation is 24.5%, however, the variation among studies ranges from 9 to 28%.14,17,40,62,80,81 Studies describing patients managed by ground EMS crews and a receiving trauma center staff indicate that the rate of tracheal intubation is 13.6%, but varies from 11 to 30%. 19,22,67,8 Clinicians with inadequate access to standard personal protective equipment (PPE) have been compelled to improvise protective barrier enclosures for use during endotracheal intubation Awake Fibreoptic Intubation (AFOI) is when a breathing tube is placed in the breathing passage through the nose or the mouth when you are awake. When is Awake Fibreoptic Intubation done? Placing a breathing tube in the breathing passage is an important part of an anaesthetic and in most cases this is done when the patient is asleep While regarded as a standard of care during rapid sequence induction for many years this is actually based on weak evidence (see video summarising the evidence) and it's use does not come without problems as poorly applied cricoid pressure can impair the view and prevent intubation
Awake intubation implies forgoing sedatives. They say awake tracheal intubation may be safely and effectively performed without sedation. However, awake intubation is an anxiety producing procedure (not just for the doctor), and sedation might improve patient tolerance and cooperation (and therefore success) The most common laryngoscope blade used for intubation in adults is the curved Macintosh blade (Figure 34-4). This is inserted into the right side of the mouth to displace the tongue laterally. The tip of the blade sits in the vallecula and is lifted forward to elevate the epiglottis and expose the laryngeal inlet
Drugs to aid intubation, including sedatives, muscle relaxants, and sometimes vagolytics, are typically given to conscious or semiconscious patients before laryngoscopy. Tube Selection and Preparation for Intubation. Most adults can accept a tube with an internal diameter of ≥ 8 mm; these tubes are preferable to smaller ones because they These side effects of being intubated are temporary and typically subside after removal of the intubation tube 3. Aspiration. People who are conscious when intubated can experience gastric aspiration as a side effect of this procedure. Placement of the intubation tube can induce your gag reflex, which can lead to vomiting
Large-scale studies show that after a full-out resuscitation effort, including intubation, 17 percent of patients live long enough to be discharged from the hospital, according to Zapata and Widera People can ask the doctor or surgeon about all of the potential side effects and risks of intubation before surgery. If a person experiences any severe or unusual side effects, they should speak to a doctor right away.

Intubation is still the gold standard for securing an airway when compared to SADs. The wide range and variety of available endotracheal tubes, intubating aids , laryngoscopes, other devices designed to visualize the airway and glottis, anatomical routes, and of course patient characteristics, means a large number of techniques are used for. Shiley™ Endotracheal Tube with TaperGuard™ Cuff, Murphy Eye with Preloaded Stylet. Our intubation product portfolio offers a full range of sizes from adult to pediatric. These products are quality tested for reliability. The products can be segmented into four key areas: Liu J, Zhang X, Gong W. Correlations between controlled endotracheal. Even with modern day advancements, endotracheal intubation is still the gold standard for the pre-hospital provider dealing with emergent airway management. Before discussing the pros and cons of endotracheal intubation (ET intubation), a few terms and descriptions must be reviewed Background: Although the standard positioning for intubation is supine in the sniffing position, there has been recent literature in the past decade that elevating the head of the bed to 25 to 30 degrees may be a preferable setup for direct laryngoscopy due to improved laryngeal view and reduced airway complications.These studies have been conducted in multiple settings and patient populations. Endotracheal intubation using rapid sequence intubation (RSI) is the cornerstone of emer- gency airway management. RSI is a safe method in patients with a full stomach but is no
Incidence of difficult endotracheal intubation ranges between 3 and 10%. Bougies have been recommended as an airway adjunct for difficult intubation, but reported success rates are variable. A new generation flexible tip bougie appears promising but was not investigated so far. We therefore compared the new flexible tip with a standard bougie in simulated normal and difficult airway scenarios. Intubation is an invasive procedure and can cause considerable discomfort. However, you'll typically be given general anesthesia and a muscle relaxing medication so that you don't feel any pain
The investigator performing the intubation and grading intubation conditions was an experienced anesthesiologist, blinded as to which group the patient had been assigned. Intubation conditions were classified as acceptable if they were graded as excellent or good and as unacceptable if they were graded as poor INJURIES to the airway are a well-recognized complication of anesthesia. 1-16 In 1991, we briefly described the sites of injury and standard of care in 97 claims for airway trauma in a review of adverse respiratory events in the American Society of Anesthesiologist (ASA) Closed Claims database. 17 The most frequent sites of airway injuries were the larynx, pharynx, and esophagus No laryngoscope is complete without quality intubation handles. Browse our entire collection of medical laryngoscope handles and blades online at Bell Medical now Complications are more likely to occur if a doctor performs intubation in an emergency. However, it is vital to remember that intubation can be a life-saving procedure in these cases. Endotracheal intubation is a very common procedure especially in the critical care unit for patients with airway problems. Patients who require mechanical ventilation needs to be intubated: either with endotracheal tube (usually for short-term use) or tracheostomy (long-term use)
The gold standard (for now) of airway management has been trans-laryngeal endotracheal intubation. While it may be critically important that you learn how to perform the skills of intubation, knowing the sequence and tasks alone does not guarantee success. As the front-line provider, you have an obligation to get the job done Complete intubation kits available with conventional, fiber optic or fiber optic disposable laryngoscope blades. Each Kit Includes: 8 Oropharyngeal color coded Guedel airways (sizes 40 mm-100 mm intubation [in″too-ba´shun] the insertion of a tube, as into the larynx; see also cannulation and catheterization. The purpose of intubation varies with the location and type of tube inserted; generally it is done to allow drainage, to maintain an open airway, or to administer anesthetics or oxygen. Intubation into the stomach or intestine is done to.
The secondary outcomes included (1) the proportion of patients with successful orotracheal intubation at any attempt, (2) total time to successful orotracheal intubation (time from anesthesia induction initiation to confirmation of good tube position based on partial pressure of end-tidal exhaled carbon dioxide), (3) Cormack-Lehane grade of. RSI: Standard of Care for Airway Management. The overall intubation success rate was 76 percent, according to their abstract. They do not report on complications. Many EMS systems have adopted SFI to avoid the risks and politics associated with prehospital RSI. This may occur by intent in treatment guidelines and protocols or surreptitiously Laryngoscopy is a term describing visualization or examination of the larynx by distraction of the upper airway structures, typically for the purpose of tracheal intubation and airway management in modern anesthesia and critical care practice as well as in many trauma scenarios. For nearly a century, direct laryngoscopy has been the standard. In rare cases, a person may experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), especially if they were not fully sedated or psychologically prepared for the procedure. To avoid such spread, certain practices used in standard rapid sequence intubation (RSI) must be modified. Techniques for improving patient care and minimizing infectious risks to care providers and spread of the virus during emergency intubation are summarized in the following table ( table 1 ) and discussed in greater detail separately
there are numerous modified versions of endotracheal tubes used in critical care, this page describes the features of a standard endotracheal tube. low profile, high volume, low pressure cuff -> decrease risk of pressure necrosis. Murphy eye -> even if ETT is in too far there is a chance of ventilating right main bronchus Ease of Intubation With the Parker Flex-Tip or a Standard Mallinckrodt Endotracheal Tube Using a Video Laryngoscope (GlideScope) Brian P. Radesic, CRNA, DNP, MSN Chris Winkelman, RN, PhD Richard Einsporn, PhD Jack Kless, CRNA, PhD I n the United States, 20 million patients undergo gen-eral anesthesia annually,1 and most will require a Preoxygenation. Oxygenation before rapid sequence intubation (RSI) is a critical step aimed at maximizing blood oxygen saturation levels and creating an oxygen reservoir in the lungs to eliminate the need for bag-valve-mask (BVM) ventilation.Preoxygenation may be the most critical of all steps involved in RSI
A thoracotomy is a type of surgery that is carried out on the chest. It is often carried out as part of lung cancer treatment or in emergency…After the trachea has been intubated, a balloon cuff is typically inflated just above the far end of the tube to help secure it in place, to prevent leakage of respiratory gases, and to protect the tracheobronchial tree from receiving undesirable material such as stomach acid. The tube is then secured to the face or neck and connected to a T-piece, anesthesia breathing circuit, bag valve mask device, or a mechanical ventilator. Once there is no longer a need for ventilatory assistance or protection of the airway, the tracheal tube is removed; this is referred to as extubation of the trachea (or decannulation, in the case of a surgical airway such as a cricothyrotomy or a tracheotomy).
