The aim of this book is to provide a complete guide to tracheostomies
for the multidisciplinary team, and it achieves this aim admirably...I
would highly recommend this book for critical care departmental
libraries, and for those individuals who have a particular interest in
the management of the patient with a tracheostomy."--Anaesthesia "The
authors have compiled a comprehensive review of all aspects of
tracheostomy highlighted by an exhaustive appraisal of all appliances
currently available for its implementation and management. The book can
serve as a one-stop reference for the selection of tracheostomy
devices..."--Annals of Thoracic Surgery

"[This
book] is easily readable and does give insight into some of the more
complex issues in placing and handling tracheostomies...it is a
publication that healthcare providers would benefit from reading."--Critical Care Medicine

"Certainly,
Tracheostomies, The Complete Guide covers the subject concisely. The
book is practical and portable. It would serve well as a reference for
anesthesiologists, and should be included in a departmental library."--Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology

"[This]
book is a great resource for anyone involved in the care of tracheostomy patients. The text not only provides the reader with a
general understanding of the procedure and available options, but also gives a glimpse into prevention and management of the myriad issues that
can arise in a patient with tracheostomy."--Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery

This book is a comprehensive reference to help manage the multitude of
issues that arise with tracheostomy patients--from the surgical procedure to the perioperative period, and from intensive care to
recovery and rehabilitation.

This book is practical and readily useable by a number of health care professionals from nurses and anesthesiologists to general surgeons, physiatrists, and many more. The chapter authors closely detail each procedure, providing step-by-step guidelines for practice, including choosing and fitting tubes and restoring the voice. This one-stop reference presents the fine details of daily care of patients with tracheostomies to help health care practitioners make appropriate
decisions and educate their patients.

Key topics:

  • The procedure: timing, preoperative management, and surgical technique
  • Types of tracheostomy tubes and related appliances
  • Care of the tracheostomy patient: oral care, nutrition, and home care
  • Special considerations for the child with a tracheostomy
