High risk patients get relief with early use of steroidsThe possible risks of reintubation and stridor in selected high-risk patients could be minimized when use of steroids is made at least four hours before extubation, as per a report.

A quantitative meta-analysis of seven studies was conducted by Dr. Samir Jaber from University of Montpellier I in France and colleagues for ascertaining the efficacy of prophylactic steroid therapy to prevent reintubation and post-extubation stridor.

It was indicated by the study that the risk of reintubation gets reduced in trials enrolling high-risk patients treated with steroids. It was, however, remarked that risk cannot be completely eliminated since it is not well-defined when conducted trials did not select patients for reintubation risk.

Risks of stridor and reintubation can be reduced with early steroid useThe risks of reintubation and stridor can be reduced to a significant extent in high-risk patients with administration of steroids at least four hours before extubation, as per a report.

Dr. Samir Jaber from University of Montpellier I in France and colleagues conducted a quantitative meta-analysis of seven studies and find out the efficacy of prophylactic steroid therapy to prevent reintubation and post-extubation stridor.

It was suggested by the study that steroid treatment is beneficial for reducing the risk of reintubation in trials that enrolled high-risk patients.

Early Steroid usage in high-risk patients can minimize stridor and reintubationThe risk of stridor and reintubation in selected high-risk patients can be minimized to a considerable extent by administering steroids at least four hours before extubation, as per a recent report.

Dr. Samir Jaber from University of Montpellier I in France and colleagues conducted a quantitative meta-analysis of seven studies for identifying the effectiveness of prophylactic steroid therapy in inhibiting reintubation and post-extubation stridor. It is noteworthy to remember that this identification process took the at-risk populations and steroid administration regimen into account.

It was suggested during the study that the prophylactic steroid therapy is still controversial in both selected and non-selected patients when it comes to preventing post-extubation stridor and reintubation.

It was indicated during the study that reintubation risk in trials enrolling high-risk patients was minimized with steroid treatment but the minimized risk was not well-defined when the conducted trials did not select patients for reintubation risk.

Reintubation and Stridor to be minimized with Early Steroid Use in High-Risk PatientsAccording to a report, the risks of reintubation and stridor in selected high-risk patients can be reduced when steroids are administered to them at least four hours before extubation.

Dr. Samir Jaber from University of Montpellier I in France and colleagues conducted a quantitative meta-analysis of seven studies with an aim to identify the effectiveness of prophylactic steroid therapy for preventing reintubation and post-extubation stridor. This identification took into account the at-risk populations and the steroid administration regimen.

However, it was revealed that prophylactic steroid therapy with an aim to prevent post-extubation stridor and reintubation is still controversial in both selected and non-selected patients.

The study indicated that the risk of reintubation in trials that enrolled high-risk patients got reduced with steroid treatment. But, the risk reduction was not completely well-defined when the conducted trials did not select patients for reintubation risk.
