Ultra fast track extubation
John Holt.
Advent health, Ormond beach, FL, USA.

Summary ultra fast track extubation. We have been extubating 60 to 80 % of our cardiac cases in the operating room for 15 years. The combination of a novel anesthetic technique and rib blocks allows for safe extubations in operating room safely and only a 1% reintubation .Also overall mortality and morbidity is improved.
