If you absolutely refused tracheotomy, they will have to call for advice and your baby will most certainly be transferred to us or another Center of Noninvasive Respiratory Management (look up the nearest one for directions for transfers) to be extubated without a tracheostomy tube but you will have to be firm about refusing tracheotomy for Medicaid or your insurance to pay for the transfer.
We have had babies intubated for over 5 months and fail 5 to 6 extubation attempts and be extubated successfully in under 24 hours upon transfer simply by extubated them according to the principles described in the articles, that is, to CNVS and MIE with the family applying the latter.
