A Single Center Experience of Pediatric Tracheostomy
- 7 Downloads
The feasibility and safety of pediatric tracheostomy care at home by parents is challenging. Many physicians are not confident of sending tracheostomized children home. We describe our experience with 12 children who underwent tracheostomy and were sent home. Nine children were successfully decannulated. With proper training of parents, the outcome of home tracheostomy seems good.
