Routine Trach Tube Change (Cambio rutinario del tubo traqueal)
This video demonstrates a two-person method for changing a trach tube. There are other methods you could use. We feel this method has more flexibility for the caregivers and is less confusing. It also prepares the caregiver to do the trach tube change alone in an emergency.
