Table 2 Initial cuff pressures dependent on time intubated prior to the measurement

From: Prospective observational study on tracheal tube cuff pressures in emergency patients– is neglecting the problem the problem?

  <60 minutes 60-119 minutes ≥120 minutes

P init < 30 19 (29%) 6 (38%) 5 (36%)
P init ≥ 30 46 (71%) 10 (62%) 9 (64%)
  1. n = number of cases. Pinit = initial cuff pressure (measured in cmH2O). Data missing: n = 6.
