Percutaneous transtracheal ventilation.

Abstract:

:PTV is an adjunct to airway management that can prove helpful in selected cases. Its speed and ease of performance are offset by the need for specialized equipment to accomplish it. This difficulty, combined with infrequent indications, makes PTV a rarely performed procedure. Nevertheless, it remains a viable airway management alternative whose applications may be broadened in the future.
