2: Percutaneous tracheostomy scar (Button scar) after 24 hours of decannulation Timing of Tracheostomy Though there are no definite guidelines indicating the exact time interval for the formation of tracheostomy after endotracheal intubation, however, the timing of tracheostomy has changed over recent years and is influenced by the indications for the procedure. Two decades back tracheostomy was considered ‘early’ if it was performed before three weeks of translaryngeal intubation. 16 Only one report, in which the authors noted methodological limitations, did not support the use of early tracheostomy.

The dilator is finally removed and ventilation might be started. 0 mm ID (or more), while allowing a very effective either spontaneous or mechanical ventilation, are more difficult to insert in emergency. An adult patient cannot spontaneously breathe through any cannula smaller than 4 mm ID. The 4 mm cannula doubles the normal inspiratory work Cricothyroidotomy of breathing while a 6 mm ID tube increases it by only 25% 37; on the other hand the latter allows adequate insufflation and complete exhalation in about 4", with a 10-12 insufflations / min-1 rate 38 and the possibility of effective tracheal aspiration.

CONCLUSION The introduction of bedside percutaneous tracheostomy techniques and their reported benefits over open tracheostomy have led to formation of elective tracheostomy earlier in the course of critical illness. The patients who may require prolonged ventilatory support for respiratory failure and can not be weaned within 7-10 days are the suitable candidates for tracheostomy. 29,30 REFERENCES 1.
