A tracheostomy is a surgically made opening in the middle front of the neck into the trachea. During this procedure (a tracheotomy), a tracheostomy tube is placed in the opening to create a passageway for air to reach the lungs.
A person who has suffered a sudden neck or head trauma, or has had health problems, paralysis, or used a ventilator for a long period of time, is a candidate for this type of procedure. A Tracheostomy can be healed shut or surgically closed but in some cases, lifetime use is required.
Signature Health Services has professional nurses that can closely monitor patients for compliance with treatment plans, administer blood draws, deliver IV infusions, and assist with education about medications and the disease or condition process.
