Broncoflex – PDT

Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is a commonly performed procedure in critically sick patients. It can be safely performed bedside by intensivists. It consists of the insertion of a cannula into the trachea following prolonged intubation or after a failed attempt to withdraw mechanical ventilation.
