Can I go home with a tracheostomy? Some patients with a tracheostomy are able to go home. One major factor in moving back home is whether you still need a breathing machine (ventilator) to help you breathe. Other factors include whether you or your caregiver(s) are able to take care of your needs and how healthy you are. Nance-Floyd, B.

With healthcare advancement, tracheostomy care has become part of the routine care in both the acute and long term care units. Good tracheostomy management has a significant impact on the patient’s general well-being and quality of life.

It is therefore important that nurses are equipped with appropriate skills and knowledge to care for patients safely and competently and to avert possible complications. Nurses provide tracheostomy care for clients with new or recent tracheostomy to maintain patency of the tube and minimize the risk for infection (since the inhaled air by the client is no longer filtered by the upper airways).

Initially a tracheostomy may need to be suctioned and cleaned as often as every 1 to 2 hours.

A blocked or partially blocked tracheostomy tube may cause severe breathing difficulties and this is a medical emergency. Immediate access to the tracheostomy kit (equipment) for the individual patient is essential.

Comprehensive Tracheostomy Care is a resource developed by the UK National Tracheostomy Safety Project (NTSP) to help promote and facilitate the safe management of tracheostomies and laryngectomies.

The scope includes hospital in-patient specialist areas such as critical care, head neck units and specialist wards, but it is also applicable to more general wards, outpatient and community. Nurses must be able to readily identify the needs of tracheostomy patients. They should apply evidence-based practice to care to ensure the patient’s condition does not deteriorate and that he or she is supported to achieve adequate respiratory function.

The best-selling textbook of medical-surgical nursing is now in its Twelfth Edition with updated content throughout and enhanced, state-of-the-art ancillaries.

Tracheostomy is a surgical procedure in which an opening is done into the trachea to prevent or relieve airway obstruction and/or to serve as access for suctioning and for mechanical ventilation and other modes of oxygen delivery (tracheostomy collar, T-piece).

A tracheostomy can facilitate weaning from mechanical ventilation by reducing dead space and lowering airway resistance. Tracheostomy care means suctioning the airway cleaning around the stoma also changing tracheostomy ties.
