Objective To investigate effects of early tracheotomy on the treatment and prevention of pulmonary infection for patients with severe craniocerebral trauma. Methods Patients with severe craniocerebral trauma (n=92) were randomly divided into treatment group and control group (46 per group). In treatment group, tracheotomy was performed in 48 hours before injury.In control group, tracheotomy was performed in 48 hours after injury. Results The incidence rate of pulmonary infection in treatment group (45.7%) was significantly lower than that in control (69.6%) (P0.05).Cured rate of pulmonary infection in treatment group was higher than that in control (P0.05). The cured time of pulmonary infection in treatment group was significantly shorter than that in control (P0.05). Conclusion Early tracheotomy can effectively prevent and treat pulmonary infection in patients with severe craniocerebral trauma.
