Previous studies reported that the most common bacteria identified in mediastinal abscess were of oropharyngeal origin, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae, Actinomyces , hemolytic Streptococcu s, and Streptococcus intermedius , suggesting that the translocation of oral and nasopharyngeal bacteria to deep mediastinal tissues through the transbronchial or transtracheal
passage of the needle were the most possible causes of mediastinitis or mediastinal abscess.

scanning just below the cricoid ring.

Although potential complications of transtracheal

oxygen therapy (TTOT) has been used in the treatment of patients with chronic hypoxemia since the early 1980's.
VAP can be identified when a chest radiograph shows a new or progressive infiltrate, consolidation, cavitations or pleural effusions and the patient has at least one of the following symptoms: new onset of purulent sputum or a change in colour of sputum, increased temperature, increased or decreased white cell count, organisms cultured from blood, and isolation of an aetiological agent by transtracheal
aspirate, bronchial brushing or biopsy.
AV was demonstrated by positive DFA and cell cultures in 3 infants in eye swabs and in one infant in the transtracheal
Hawke's Bay clinical nurse specialist (CNS) Christine Bent recounted her experience with transtracheal
oxygen delivery systems--both the clinical use of these devices and the journey she has followed as she pioneered these devices in her practice.
