Abstract

A survey was distributed to practicing pediatric otolaryngologists in the United States, Canada, and England to determine the range of care of the pediatric tracheostomy patient. The questionnaire addressed the use of monitoring devices, intensive care unit usage, timing of first tracheotomy change, as well as parent education and home care. Of the 187 questionnaires issued, 65 responses were received, representing almost 1,500 tracheotomies per year. The results show a number of centers moving toward the establishment of a tracheostomy team, including a surgeon, specialty nurse, speech therapist, and others. As of recent years, most centers reported the increased use of monitoring devices along with earlier discharges made possible by better-trained parents.
