Risk factors predicting laryngeal injury in intubated neonates.


We evaluated 95 extubated neonates to determine if certain risk factors could predict the development of laryngeal injury. Risk factors were recorded prospectively during the intubation period and correlated with laryngeal injury determined by laryngoscopy after extubation. Duration of intubation greater than or equal to 7 days and 3 or more intubations significantly predicted injury.
