Bigger trach = Better results

The ENT doc just came and changed his 4.0 PED cuffed trach to a 4.5 and, despite some bleeding, he is ventilating better and able to come off of the rate and back to his previous settings of just CPAP and pressure support (7 over 8). Mechanical problem indeed. Thank God!


  1. Whew. Good to hear. PICU is no place to spend Friday night, but at least your little champ is breathing easier. yay. Now... let's get out of there and back home Brosie! Sending much love and tough boy vibes (and tough mommy and daddy vibes too).
