Abstract

We describe the combined use of mask CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) and minitracheotomy as an alternative to conventional endotracheal intubation in 3 patients requiring CPAP, secretion removal and diagnostic procedures such as bronchoalveolar lavage and bronchial cultures. These requirements were fulfilled with the combined technique approach, thus preserving glottic function and avoiding the disadvantages of endotracheal intubation or trachectomy. This approach seems particularly suitable in the treatment of immunocompromised patients because of its reduced invasiveness.
