OBJECTIVES: At our institution, there is a six bed Pediatric Respiratory Care Unit for technology dependent infants and children with a tracheostomy tube. A lack of consistency in patient care and parent/guardian education prompted our group to critically evaluate the services we provided by revisiting our teaching protocol and instituting a new model of care in the Unit. The aims of this quality improvement (QI) project were to standardize care and skills proficiency training to parents of infants with a tracheostomy tube in preparation for discharge to home...

Being a fast and safe method in the hands of well trained professionals in both prehospital and intrahospital care, Cricothyrotomy has been broadly recommended as the initial surgical airway in the scenario "can't intubate, can't ventilate", and is particularly useful when the obstruction level is above or at the glottis. Its prolonged permanence, however, is an endless source of controversy. In this review we evaluate the complications of cricothyrotomy and the need of its routine conversion to tracheotomy through a search on PubMed, LILACS and SciELO electronic databases with no restriction to the year or language of the publication...

Inhalation therapy has become a popular procedure for the treatment of patients with tracheostomy. However, clinicians are faced with many challenges during inhalation therapy because of the many factors affecting aerosol therapy to this patient population, and the lack of literature providing guidance in this area of research. Areas covered: The purpose of this paper is to describe the factors affecting aerosol drug delivery to patients with tracheostomy and to explain how to optimize inhalation therapy through device selection, interface selection and delivery technique in this patient population...

Since the development of percutaneous tracheostomy, the number of tracheostomy patients on hospital wards has increased. Problems associated with adequate tracheostomy care on the wards are well documented, particularly the management of tracheostomy-related emergencies. A survey was conducted among non-consultant hospital doctors (NCHDs) starting their Critical Care Medicine training rotation in a university affiliated teaching hospital to determine their basic knowledge and skills in dealing with tracheostomy emergencies...

BACKGROUND: With more care taking place in the home, family carers play an important role in supporting patients. Some family carers undertake technical health procedures generally managed by health professionals in hospital settings (e.g. managing a tracheostomy or enteral feeding). AIM: To explore how family carers learn to manage technical health procedures in order to help health professionals better understand and support this process. DESIGN AND METHODS: A grounded theory study using data from interviews with 26 New Zealand family carers who managed technical health procedures including nasogastric or gastrostomy feeding, stoma care, urinary catheterisation, tracheostomy management, intravenous therapy, diabetes management and complex wound dressings...

OBJECTIVES: Currently few children with tracheostomies attend rural mainstreams schools in South Africa limiting their ability to gain an education. We sought to document the current school experience for the few children attending school who have tracheostomies and devise educational tools for teachers and administrators that will facilitate greater acceptance and safety in classrooms for this population. METHODS: The four patients that are currently attending school with a tracheostomy were identified from the patient records of a tertiary hospital with a pediatric tracheostomy home based care service...

OBJECTIVE: Appropriate tracheostomy and laryngectomy care requires that nurses maintain specific knowledge and a particular skillset, to ensure safe, competent care. Deficiencies in this nursing care remain a persistent problem. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of a nurse training program on knowledge and self-efficacy with tracheostomy and laryngectomy care. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, interventional survey design. SETTING: Academic, tertiary care hospital between September 2014 and April 2015...

The National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death recently conducted a large, robust study investigating tracheostomy care for patients in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. They found up to 31% of tracheostomy patients experience a complication at some stage in their care, many of which were serious. This study aims to explore the nature of adverse events and complications affecting tracheostomy patients across the diverse hospitals of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) including both adult and paediatric populations over a 6-year period between 2008 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to analyze and describe the morbidity and mortality associated with tracheostomy in patients with oral cancer and to identify the risk factors associated with tracheostomy complications. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of patients who underwent tracheostomy during a major oral cancer resection between March 2001 and January 2016 at the National Cancer Center, Korea. Overall, we included 51 patients who underwent tracheostomy after oral cancer surgery...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The core mission of the Pulmonary Habilitation Program is to train and prepare caregivers for the care of a ventilated child in the home. It exists within a free-standing children's hospital. The program is supported by a multidisciplinary staff and serves ∼100 children. Through standardizing electronic documentation with process-specific tracking for the discharge process, the Pulmonary Habilitation Program team sought to identify intervention opportunities for more efficient and effective discharges...

Importance: Pediatric tracheostomy is commonly performed for upper airway obstruction and prolonged mechanical ventilation. Children undergoing tracheostomy typically have multiple chronic medical problems that place them at high risk for readmission and additional complications. Objective: To determine whether the institution of a postoperative protocol for parent education and wound care with a nurse trained in tracheostomy care decreases the rate of readmission and other complications...

The approach to patients affected by motor neuron disease (MND) and their caregivers requires specific training for the care-team. In fact, the progression of the disease, with the decline of physical--and sometimes cognitive--function, the increasing difficulties in speaking, breathing, and swallowing and the need of invasive choices, as the artificial nutrition and tracheostomy, constitute a challenge for the health professionals, often generating distress. For this reason, their cohesion and sharing abilities are fundamental...

BACKGROUND: Robin sequence (RS), characterised by micrognathia/retrognathia and glossoptosis with or without cleft palate, presents with intermittent upper airway obstruction and feeding difficulties. Active intervention is required to reduce the risk of brain damage or sudden death. Most treatment options are poorly studied and/or invasive. Our group developed a functional approach including early feeding training and the pre-epiglottic baton plate (PEBP), an orthodontic appliance with a velar extension shifting the base of the tongue forward...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Understanding the mechanisms and abnormalities of respiratory function in neuromuscular disease is critical to supporting the patient and maintaining ventilation in the face of acute or chronic progressive impairment. RECENT FINDINGS: Retrospective clinical studies reviewing the care of patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome and myasthenia have shown a disturbingly high mortality following step-down from intensive care. This implies high dependency and rehabilitation management is failing despite evidence that delayed improvement can occur with long-term care...

To determine the factors inducing aspiration following esophagectomy with three-field lymph node dissection (3FL) and the effect of the chin-down maneuver combined with supraglottic swallow (CDSS). Retrospective analysis of a consecutive case series. Videofluoroscopic (VF) evaluations of 25 patients who consulted with our out-patient clinic from 2006 to 2012 for swallowing dysfunction following esophagectomy with 3FL without tracheostomy were reviewed. The penetration aspiration scale (PAS) was used for evaluation...

REVIEW
Erica Everitt
The National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death in 2014 concluded that tracheostomy care fell below what is safe and reasonable to expect, and that staff needed training in this essential skill. This article, the first of a four-part series on all aspects of tracheostomy management, discusses the principles of tracheostomy care.
