Guidelines for tracheostomy from the Korean bronchoesophagological society

Korean Bronchoesophagological Society Guideline Task Force

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The Korean Bronchoesophagological Society appointed a task force to develop a clinical practice guideline for tracheosto-my. The task force conducted a systematic search of the Embase, Medline, Cochrane Library, and KoreaMed databases to identify relevant articles, using search terms selected according to key questions. Evidence-based recommendations for practice were ranked according to the American College of Physicians grading system. An external expert review and a Delphi questionnaire were conducted to reach a consensus regarding the recommendations. Accordingly, the committee developed 18 evidence-based recommendations, which are grouped into seven categories. These recommendations are intended to assist clinicians in performing tracheostomy and in the management of tracheostomized patients.
