Endotracheal tube (ETT) cuff pressure monitoring during percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) procedure is an easy-to-use innovative addition to the standard blind technique in a resource-limited setting. This technique can be carried out without disconnecting the breathing circuit, resulting in a lower risk of infectious aerosol generation.
