Analysis of clinical application value of early tracheotomy on severe craniocerebral trauma patients

Objective: To treat the severe craniocerebral trauma patients by using early tracheotomy and explore the influences on clinical effects and relevant indexes.

Methods: 76 severe craniocerebral trauma patients in our hospital were randomly divided into the control group and the observation group, each 38 cases. The control group was given tracheotomy after 24 h, the observation group was given tracheotomy within 24 h. Compared clinical effects, neurological deficit score improvement, pulmonary infection and so on of patients in two groups before and after treatment.

Results: Compared with the control group, effective rate of patients in the observation group increased obviously after treatment, there were statistical differences (P<0.05). Compared with the control group after the treatment, its neurological deficit score decreased obviously, there were statistical differences (P<0.05). Pulmonary infection rate in the treatment group lower than the control group obviously, there were statistical differences (P<0.05).

Conclusion: The clinical effects of early tracheotomy on severe craniocerebral trauma patients are obvious. It has wide application value in clinic, which needs further application.
