abstract

  • Reintubation after neurosurgery is associated with older patients with a greater number of comorbidities. In particular, renal, pulmonary, and severe neurologic comorbidities; longer operative duration; and cranial, rather than spinal, pathology were associated with increased risk for reintubation. These findings may be helpful in triage decisions regarding postoperative intensity of care and monitoring.
