In this abstract we have analyzed the different techniques of tracheostomy, considering new semplified methods of this procedure and therefore the common use of it in weaning from mechanical ventilation the critical care patients. We’ve tried to summarize guide lines of the preoperative, operative and postoperative procedures of tracheostomy, comparing our nursing clinical experience in ICU and the latest literature. We’ve primarily analyzed the nursing aspects of this issue, trying to focus on the priority of the treatment of the tracheostomezed patient.
