What is Tracheostomy?
Tracheostomy is a surgical procedure to create an artificial airway through the neck, aiding breathing and managing secretions directly through the trachea. It’s done for emergency cases, like airway blockage, and for long-term support in chronic respiratory issues. This procedure involves creating a stoma in the neck, connecting to the trachea and can serve both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
Tracheostomy requires careful patient evaluation and precise surgical techniques to prevent complications like bleeding, infection, or nearby structure injuries. Nursing care and suctioning steps are essential to maintain airway health and manage secretions. Home care is vital for stoma care, proper healing, and avoiding infections.
When And Who Will Need Tracheostomy?
Tracheostomy is usually recommended for individuals facing significant airway problems or requiring long-term mechanical ventilation. The decision involves assessing the patient’s history, current health, and prognosis. Here are the conditions and individuals who might need a tracheostomy

Tracheostomy suctioning is essential to remove secretions that can block the tube, which may otherwise impede breathing. Correct steps include using sterile techniques to clear the tube without causing discomfort or injury to the patient.
Inadequate care can cause infections, airway blockages, stenosis, and decannulation issues. Without proper maintenance, blockages can develop, leading to respiratory difficulties and potential emergency situations.
Tube change frequency depends on the patient’s condition and the tube’s condition. Generally, tubes are changed every 1-2 months or earlier if necessary due to blockages or to prevent infection.
With proper care, most tracheostomy patients can perform regular activities, although they may require additional precautions and care. It’s essential to ensure they’re comfortable, and their environment is conducive to their needs.
