The 2010 Tracheostomy Resource Guide for Medical Professionals

The mission of is primarily educational.  Our goal is to educate physicians, nurses, therapists, and all health professionals who care for patients with tracheostomies.  Our book, Tracheostomies: The Complete Guide (2010, NY: Springer) provides an in-depth look at care of the patient with a tracheostomy at all phases of hospitalization and recovery.   

The evidence-based literature related to patients with tracheostomies is lacking in many areas.  We hope that this website can provide a forum for networking among those of us who care for these patients, in order to share challenging cases and collaborate on clinical investigations. 

We are also available for speaking engagements and consulting services (see Contact Us).
