Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The investigators will enroll for this study
  • patients aged >18 years old, admitted to the ICU,
  • who require elective PCT for prolonged mechanical ventilation, airway protection or weaning failure.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients indicated for surgical tracheostomy, due to altered or difficult local anatomy;
  • necessity of emergency airway access due to acute airway compromise;
  • evidence of infection in the soft tissues of the neck;
  • coagulation abnormalities (INR>1.5, PTT>40, thrombocyte count < 50,000);
  • gross distortion of the neck anatomy (due to hematoma/tumor/thyromegaly/scarring from previous neck surgery/ unstable C-spine);
  • contra-indication for re-intubation/suspected loss of airway during re-intubation; hemodynamic instability.
