Is tracheostomy care the same as tracheotomy?

The terms tracheotomy and tracheostomy are frequently used interchangeably and, while they are part of the same class, they do differ. A tracheotomy refers to the procedure that creates a tracheostomy. A tracheotomy consists of a surgical incision made to the trachea. The resulting incision or hole is then termed a tracheostomy, which can be either temporary or permanent. 

Following a tracheotomy procedure, your surgeon will secure a tracheostomy tube with a band around your neck to keep the tube in place during recovery. Tracheotomy care is more frequently referred to as tracheostomy care, since that actual incision — or tracheostomy — is what is being treated and cared for. Whether you are seeking tracheostomy or tracheotomy care near you, Haven Health has you covered. Our team of medical professionals can answer any questions you have regarding your complex condition. 

Individuals may benefit from a tracheostomy if they: 

  • Have medical conditions that require a ventilator for an extended period of time
  • Have medical conditions that block or narrow the airway, such as throat cancer or vocal cord paralysis
  • Suffer from paralysis, neurological problems, or other conditions that make coughing up secretions and clearing the airway difficult
  • Suffered severe trauma to the head or neck that obstructs their ability to breathe
  • Experience emergency situations where breathing is obstructed and a breathing tube cannot be positioned through the mouth

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a tracheostomy care procedure?

The nursing staff at Haven Health can aid in performing tracheostomy care. A tracheostomy care procedure consists of suctioning the tracheostomy tube if necessary, cleaning the inner cannula, replacing and securing the inner cannula, cleaning the incision site and tube flange, applying a sterile dressing, changing the tracheostomy ties, and adjusting the tightness of the ties. We understand that this can seem overwhelming, and you may have concerns about performing tracheostomy care independently. That is why our staff undergoes extensive training to ensure the best tracheostomy care for our residents.
