A tracheostomy tube supports breathing for those who cannot breathe normally due to an injury to the head or the neck or some issue with the windpipe. The placement of a tracheostomy tube can be short-term or long-term. HPFY understands these concerns, which is why we have listed some tips to help you settle in easily at home.
Tracheostomy is a surgical procedure performed to create a hole in the front area of the neck into the windpipe. Then a tracheostomy tube is placed in this hole to keep it open for breathing. It provides a passage for breathing when the normal route of breathing gets blocked. A tracheostomy is performed when a health problem requires long-term breathing support from a machine or after a traumatic injury to the face or the neck. Learn all about tracheal tubes at HPFY.
