The article focuses on post-operative failure after congenital heart surgery. Early extubation is done in older infants and children to decrease pulmonary issues, shorten ICU stay, decrease sedation and lower the risk of pulmonary hypertensive crisis with suctioning. Infants are found to be at higher risk of failed extubation with failure rates between 11 to 27%.
