Purpose
This program covers the information necessary for providing care for children who have a tracheostomy or use a ventilator. Content is based on the American Thoracic Society guidelines, “Care of the Child with a Chronic Tracheostomy”. While the focus of this course is care in the home, the information can be used for caring for a child with a chronic tracheostomy in any setting.

Topics include anatomy, physiology and assessment of the pediatric respiratory system, conditions necessitating a tracheostomy and ventilator support, and commonly used tracheostomy tubes. Tracheostomy procedures such as stoma care, suctioning and trach tube changes are discussed. Equipment and supplies needed to manage the tracheostomy and provide ventilatory support are described. The program concludes with emergency care of the child with a tracheostomy and emergency readiness for a child with special health care needs.

The program contains a series of 10 course units. Each unit includes a lecture to watch and listen to and learning activities for applying the information covered by the lecture.
