Aims & Outcomes
- Develop an appropriate bedside scoring method for describing the position and orientation of a tracheostomy tube tip when viewed endoscopically from a standardised position
- Correlate the endoscopic views of the tracheostomy tube with the trans-laryngeal views.
- Is it possible to predict the trans-laryngeal view from the endoscopic view.
- Does the position of a tracheostomy tube tip change when the patient is repositioned following percutaneous tracheostomy (when viewed endoscopically)
- Equipment training: Compare the number of supervised endoscopies required to consistently achieve the required standardised view
- Determine the scoring system with the best inter-rater agreement as defined by weighted kappa and intra-class correlation coefficients.
- Assess correlation between the best scoring system (chosen by above) with the translaryngeal view
- Tertiary aim - Assessment of training: Determine the number of attempts required to obtain adequate standardised views. This will be a manikin based assessment to demonstrate competence in performing the endoscopies for the study before any procedures are undertaken on patients.
