The NEUROlogically-impaired Extubation Timing Trial
This randomized controlled trial will enrol patients with acute severe brain injury who pass
a spontaneous breathing trial but have decreased level of consciousness. It will directly
compare (1) prompt extubation vs. (2) prompt tracheostomy vs. (3) usual care, with
extubation or tracheostomy timed according to physicians' discretion. The primary outcome
will be ICU free days (days spent alive and outside an ICU).
