Extubation can be considered when there is an airleak around the deflated cuff of an appropriately sized endotracheal tube at 20–30 cmH2O, a level of consciousness consistent with airway protection, and acceptable gas exchange. In small children, a short course of steroids beginning 8–12 hr before extubation and continuing for a total of 24 hr may facilitate extubation without subsequent stridor. Bronchospasm can develop immediately after inhalation injury, especially in small children, but is usually responsive to inhaled beta-agonist agents.

However, there are other equally accurate methods of determining viability on inspection. Moist yellow fat, patent small blood vessels, the absence of thrombosis of small vessels, and the absence of extravascular hemoglobin are all consistent with viable tissue in a dry field. Reliable identification of the viability of excised wounds that are not bleeding is an acquired skill. It must be selftaught or learned. It is an essential skill that may be difficult to master or maintain if one is not doing these procedures frequently (44).

These excisions can be performed with hand-held or powered dermatomes (Textbox: Layered excision technique). A pleasing cosmetic result generally occurs when sheet grafts are placed on viable subcutaneous fat. It is important to place the graft so that it will conform nicely to the 43 many small irregularities in such a wound bed, and that no fat is left exposed, as this predictably leads to fat desiccation and graft loss. Widely meshed grafts do poorly on fat. Fascial excisions are done infrequently, but are indicated if burns involve subcutaneous fat or in patients with massive, full-thickness burns in whom the risk of graft loss on extensive wounds excised to subcutaneous fat represents a threat to their life.
