Things to keep in mind when performing tracheostomy maintenance

  • Do not forget to keep all the supplies required for tracheostomy care near the bed before starting the procedure. It is advisable to use pre-packaged tracheostomy kits containing gauze pads, cotton tip applicators, dressings, and Hydrogen Peroxide, NACL solution (0.9%), suction kit, and sterile gloves. Also check the Velcro strap that hold the tracheostomy tube in place. Replace if it is soiled.
  • It must be ensured that the patient is pre-oxygenated with 100% oxygen before suctioning. The patient should be calm during the procedure. If he/she is agitated a sedative should be given or the procedure must be reschedule for a later time. Post tracheostomy pain medications are given to the patients to help them adapt to the tracheostomy tube.
  • After the tracheostomy care procedure is completed the soiled dressings and other supplies used during the procedure must be discarded in a biohazard container to maintain hygiene. Pain medications must be given if necessary.

Complications of Tracheostomy care

Tracheostomy care and maintenance is a benign procedure. There is a risk that the tube may be accidentally removed or the airway lost. Seek for emergency medical help in any such situation.
