Transtracheal oxygen therapy is a well-established modality for improving oxygenation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, sleep apnea, pulmonary fibrosis, and other conditions causing hypoxic respiratory failure. In spite of its proven track record, the device remains underutilized. This article reviews benefits and complications related to the use of this modality with an illustrative case presentation.

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.
Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.
