Hello Soegy Doank,

Tracheostomy is the act of making a hole in the airway-windpipe (trachea). This artificial channel becomes the airway to replace the nose and mouth. In some cases the tracheostomy cannula is connected to a breathing apparatus. The indications for a tracheostomy are as follows:

Obstruction in the upper respiratory tract, for example due to tumors (neck cancer, nasopharynx, etc.) or trauma (burns in the face / neck area, severe injury to the face) Congenital respiratory tract disorders (congenital birth) Diaphragmatic dysfunction Conditions that require long-term ventilator ( paralysis of the respiratory muscles, etc.) Post-tracheostomy de-writing (the removal of a device that is placed in the tracheostomy hole) will leave a stoma (hole) that requires wound care. Patients generally need adjustments and education before de-writing. The stoma will generally close without suturing. The time needed for wound healing to occur is at least 1-2 weeks. As long as the stoma is open, secretions can occur and there is a risk of infection. Therefore, wound care by routinely cleaning the wound and changing gauze / wound dressing is needed.

If the patient feels tightness or when he sleeps, a heavy snoring from the stoma should seek medical attention immediately. If there is a wide reddish area around the tracheostomy wound, palpable pain, accompanied by secretions such as pus, appearing fever, you should see a doctor. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
