-Complication rates range from 18-49% with variation due to criterion of complication
-date of tracheostomy
-doctor who completed procedure
-date of decannulation
-calculating frequencies across the whole cohort
-comparing data across three time periods (1982-1991, 1992-2001, 2002-2011)
-comparison to previous literature
