Tracheostomy Care Instruction

A tracheostomy is surgery making an opening through the neck into the airway. A tracheostomy tube is placed in this opening to provide access to the airway. This access helps the patient to breathe and allows secretions in the lungs to be removed. Tracheostomy care instruction involves teaching and supervision of the proper way to care for a tracheostomy tube using cleaning and maintenance education materials.
