Oh the Dilemma! Selection of the Right Tracheostomy Tube
Medical devices cause thirty percent of all pressure injuries. Of them, 5.5% of pressure injuries are attributed to tracheostomy tubes. Tracheostomy tubes can help maintain a patent airway or serve as a conduit for mechanical ventilation. There are several types of tracheostomy tubes in the market with different purposes and challenges. It is essential to understand what each tube is designed for and their unique clinical considerations. In addition to the type of tube, the sizing also matters in the comfort and prevention of device-related injury. Device-related pressure injuries can cost three times more for the medical care required. This webinar provides information on how to select the right type and size of the tube for your patient.

Objectives:
1. Describe the structure of a tracheostomy
2. Differentiate between different types of tracheostomy tubes
3. Discuss the clinical considerations in selecting the right type and size of tracheostomy tubes
4. Examine the clinical factors while caring for patients with varying types of tracheostomy tubes
