Abstract: 

Tracheostomy offers advantages for long term respiratory support. This study was performed to assess the changes in pulmonary mechanics before and after tracheostomy in 20 patients with prolonged mechanical ventilation. We can not detect any significant differences in pulmonary mechanics after tracheostomy except the change in peak inspiratory pressure. Peak inspiratory pressure was significantly reduced (pre tracheostomy 31.59+5. 7 mmHg vs post tracheostomy 27.5+5.3mmHg). We concluded that tracheostomy very little changes pulmonary mechanics except in a fall in peak inspiratory pressure.
