Frequently Asked Questions

We've answered the most common tracheostomy questions our training experts get asked.

What is a tracheostomy?

A tracheostomy provides an air passage to help you breathe when the usual route to breathe is blocked or reduced. A hole is surgically created through the front of the neck and into the windpipe (trachea) to allow direct access to the breathing tube.

Our Tracheostomy course will teach learners to identify the different types of tubes and how to care for someone with a tracheostomy. Enrol your staff today by sending us a message or giving us a call.
