A tracheostomy Tube is used to maintain a patient airway through tracheostomy and mechanically ventilate patients. A tracheostomy opens a direct airway into the neck. In the emergency setting, a tracheostomy can save lives when other airway management strategies fail. A tracheostomy has numerous benefits which include: It may allow a person with chronic breathing difficulties to talk, It may eliminate the need for care in an intensive care unit, It builds a more stable airway that is less likely to suffer serious injuries, It may improve breathing. This may speed healing and improve outcomes in people with chronic, long-term medical conditions, It may reduce the need for sedation and eliminate the need for masks and other facial equipment, potentially improving relationships and quality of life, It may enable a person who was on a feeding tube to again eat by mouth, Improvement in the patient’s psychological state likely related to improved patient ability to speak, eat and improved patient comfort.
