This well-conducted review concluded that early extubation appeared safe and was associated with reduction in length of intensive care unit and hospital stay, without adverse effects on mortality or morbidity, after paediatric heart surgery. However, available studies were poor, varied and not suitable to demonstrate a causal effect. These conclusions are likely to be reliable.
