TRACHEOSTOMY CARE

Tracheostomy is a stoma (a small opening) made in the trachea (your windpipe) where it is close to the skin. A tracheostomy tube is put in to your trachea to help you breathe. A tracheostomy may be performed for the following conditions:

  • Obstruction of the mouth or throat

  • Breathing difficulty caused by edema (swelling), injury or pulmonary (lung) conditions

  • Airway reconstruction following tracheal or laryngeal surgery

  • Airway protection from secretions or food because of swallowing problems

  • Airway protection after head and neck surgery

  • Long-term need for ventilator (breathing machine) support

This course aims to remove the fear out of tracheostomy care. This course is designed for health care providers and family members in order to allow them to get comfortable and become confident with a tracheostomy patient.
