TRACHEOSTOMY CARE

Tracheostomy opens the airway and aids breathing by making an incision through the neck, into the wind pipe. Depending on the condition of the patient, it may be temporary or permanent; and may be done in an emergency, at the patient’s bedside or in an operating room. Tracheostomy Care requires clinical inputs from a wide range of health care specialists.
