Tracheostomy Care at Home

​Tracheostomy is a surgically-created hole in the neck below the vocal cords. A tracheostomy tube is inserted through the opening to allow air passage into lungs when the patient cannot breathe on his/her own.

When the tube is no longer needed, your doctor will remove it. The tracheostomy hole usually heals on its own.
