    Abstract

    A short cut review was carried out to establish whether routine chest x rays are required following bronchoscopy guided percutaneous dilational tracheostomy (PDT). A total of 393 citations were reviewed of which six answered the three part question. The clinical bottom line is that at present there is no clinical evidence to support routine postprocedure chest x ray following bronchoscopy guided percutaneous dilatianal tracheostomy.
