Preparing for Tracheostomy Surgery
An MD describes trach surgery and immediate post-op
A pediatric ENT surgeon describes reasons to consider a trach, the surgery, and immediate post-op including teaching the parents how to go home and manage the trach. No one went to college to learn how to do this. We don’t want parents living in a glass house. We want them to feel empowered. They aren’t going to go home until they feel safe.
