Tracheostomy is a procedure that helps in creating a surgical airway in the cervical trachea. It is usually performed in patients who have difficulty weaning  ventilator, followed by those who have suffered from any trauma or a catastrophic neurologic insult. Neoplasticism and infectious processes are less common in diseases that require a surgical airway.

 

Tracheostomy is a surgical procedure of access; therefore, it should be discussed in respect of the problem it addresses: access to the tracheobronchial tree. The trachea is a passage between the upper airway and the lungs that delivers moist warm air and expels carbon dioxide and sputum. Failure or blockage of it at any point can be most readily corrected with the provision of access for mechanical ventilators and suction equipment. In the cases of upper airway obstruction, tracheostomy helps in providing a path of low resistance for air exchange.

 

Difference between tracheostomy and tracheotomy 

 

A tracheostomy which is also called tracheotomy,  is an opening which is surgically created through the neck into the trachea (windpipe) to allow direct access to the breathing tube and is commonly done under general anesthesia. The term “tracheotomy” refers to the incision into the trachea (windpipe) that forms a temporary or permanent opening, which is called a “tracheostomy,” however; the terms are sometimes used interchangeably.

Early Complications which may arise just after the tracheostomy procedure include:

  • Bleeding
  • Air gets trapped around the lungs (pneumothorax)
  • Air found trapped in the deeper layers of the chest(pneumomediastinum)
  • Air trapped underneath the skin around the tracheostomy called as subcutaneous emphysema.
  • Damage to the swallowing tube (esophagus)
  • Injury to the nerve which moves the vocal cords.
  • Tracheostomy tube blocked by blood clots,pressure or mucus of the airway walls.
  • Any type of Blockages can be prevented by suctioning, humidifying the air, and selecting the appropriate tracheostomy tube.

Many of these early complications can be dealt or avoided with appropriate help with our experienced surgeons.

Later Complications that may show up while the tracheostomy tube is in place, include:

  • Accidental removal of the whole or part of  tracheostomy tube, accidental decannulation.
  • Infection occurring in trachea and around the tracheostomy tube
  • Windpipe itself may become damaged.

These complications can be prevented or quickly relieved with if the caregiver has proper knowledge of how to care for the tracheostomy site.

High-risk groups

The other risks associated with tracheostomies are higher in the following groups of patients:

  • children, especially newborns and infants
  • smokers
  • alcohol abusers
  • diabetics
  • immunocompromised patients
  • persons with chronic diseases or respiratory infections
  • persons taking steroids or cortisone

A tracheostomy is usually done to cure one of several reasons:

  • It is done to bypass an obstructed upper airway
  • Also performed to clean and remove secretions from the airway;
  • Prolonged mechanical ventilation (breathing machine); and
  • To more easily, and usually more safely, deliver oxygen to the lungs.

Patients are able to enjoy a good lifestyle with a permanent tracheostomy tube. However, some people find it difficult to adapt to breathing and communication.

Physical activity

One should be able to continue everyday activities, but you should avoid vigorous activities for about six weeks after the procedure.

Speech

Speaking is a difficult task after having a tracheostomy. After tracheostomy is  done, one should refer to language and speech therapist who will help to give you further advice and training in speaking while the tube is still inserted so that you can improve your ability to communicate.

Our surgeon monitors the healing for several days after the tracheostomy. The initial tube placed at the time of surgery will be changed to a new tube between 10 and 14 days following surgery. Tube is changed subsequently by the treating physician or nursing staff.

Mainly, Speech will be difficult until the time comes for a special tube to be placed. Once the-size of the tube is decreased, speaking may be possible. At the appropriate time, instructions will be given. Oral feeding will also be difficult until a smaller tube is placed.

If the tracheostomy tube will be necessary for a long period of time, the patient and family will be helped with home care. This will include suctioning of the trachea, changing and cleaning of the tube.

  • tracheostomy care nursing, tracheostomy  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.

  • tracheostomy care nursing, tracheostomy  Unqualified office staff, when you call to clarify something. Many times they don't understand the question. They are not trained well. The customer care staff needs an upgraded system, where notes are fed into the system. So you don't need someone else calling up and giving you the same info. The caretaker is not trained well. If they are looking after an elderly person, they should know that they have to be in the best of health to look after my mother. She ended not making a meal for my mother and my neighbour had to provide it. If the caretaker is not well she should have asked for a replacement asap and not waited. It is shocking, we have paid a huge amount of money for this service and I am absolutely unhappy. Please do not call for caretaker's from Care24. As long as they are getting their money. They care a damn!!! Worst service providers.

  • tracheostomy care nursing, tracheostomy  Most horrible services. Please do not ask for help from these people, they will talk sweet and then at the last moment there will be no shows from the caretaker. I had to go through this not once but twice the caretaker did not turn up. Request you all to not depend on these people as we are leaving our homes and letting them into our lives, the least they can do is inform and provide a replacement, but neither of it happened and they expect me to pay registration fees of RS,1000
