Abstract

The acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic and other potentially fatal blood-borne infectious diseases have produced a heightened awareness for preventing accidental inoculation of surgeons and operating theatre staff. It is incumbent upon the head and neck surgeon to use safe and effective surgical technique in these patients to prevent such an event. We are seeing an increasing number of patients with AIDS and hepatitis undergoing tracheotomy. We present a sharps-free technique for tracheotomy which is safe for the hospital staff and the patient.
