If your loved one has received or is soon to receive a tracheotomy, we can administer care on a short-term or long-term basis, depending on their immediate needs and potential recovery goals. Our team of nurses and speech therapists understands the complexity of tracheotomy care and works closely with recipients to restore normal oxygen flow and breathing patterns.
If you are not familiar with a tracheotomy, it is a surgical procedure to create a hole through a patient's neck that goes into their throat (or trachea). This is done to restore breathing when the typical airway is impaired or disrupted, and it can assist with swallowing, suctioning and speech. We've administered tracheotomy care in Maryland for many different causes, including airway obstructions, severe respiratory distress and oral cancer.
