  • TRACHEOSTOMY CARE FOR OLD AGED PEOPLE

    Tracheostomy means creating an artificial opening in the windpipe ( trachea ) by a surgical procedure. It is done to facilitate breathing in patients where normal breathing is not possible or in patients who have to be weaned off from the ventilator. Air goes in and out through this opening and whatever secretions the lungs produce can be removed from this opening.



    INDICATIONS

    There are many indications, few of them are

    Congenital conditions affecting wind pipe and larynx.

    2. Tumours affecting the wind pipe.

    3. Injury affecting respiration.

    4. Fractures affecting head and neck

    5. As a precaution in major head and neck surgeries.

    6. In certain patients requiring long term convalescence.



    CARE OF TRACHEOSTOMY



    Care of tracheostomy differs in patients who can do self care or in bed ridden patients who have to be helped with tracheostomy care.



    The basic principle is to keep the air moist as the natural organs that is the mouth and the nose which moisten the air before it enters the wind pipe are bypassed because of tracheostomy. Few tips to keep the air moist are

    1. Drinking lots of water if not contraindicated medically.

    2. Saline wash as advised by doctor.

    3. Humidifying the air in the room by humidifiers.

    4. Care of skin around the tracheostomy

    a. Special care of skin around the tracheostomy should be done in such a way that the water and soap does not enter the tracheostomy. It is best to clean it with sterile piece of gauze. Any secretion or mucus which gathers near the skin should be dislodged gently without disturbing the tracheostomy. Any redness or soreness on the skin should be noted and reported.

    b. If mucoid secretions tend to collect around the tracheostomy then plain gauze can be kept around the opening.

    5. Suction :- it is required time to time to bring out secretions from the lungs. In a patient who is able to take care of the tracheostomy himself it is easy for him to bring it out and the patient will know when to do suction if the chest feels heavy. In bed ridden patients the attendant has to be taught to do gentle suction as and when the secretions can be heard in the chest or when they are coming out.

    6. Few tips for doing suction

    a. Keep the machine off while inserting the suction tube.

    b. Don’t insert the catheter inside for more than 10 seconds specially in patients requiring oxygen.

    c. After insertion of the tube pull out tube a little before switching on the machine.

    d. Rinse the catheter with water or saline in between suctions.

    e. Keep the head up.

    f. Wipe out whatever secretions accumulate around the tracheostomy or in the mouth.

    These are few tips regarding tracheostomy care but ALWAYS CONSULT your Doctor or a senior nursing attendant before doing tracheostomy care by yourself.

  • 20. Kent says…
    • No prescription can be made on any patient except after a careful and prolonged study of the case
      • to know what it promises in the symptoms, and
      • everything that has existed previously
    • Always restudy your cases
    • Do not administer a medicine without knowing the constitution of the patient
    06/09/09 Concept of Disease in Homeopathy: Knowing the Disease
  • 21. Summary
    • Acute disease is the result of interaction between the virulence of the organism and the resistance of the patient.
      • Known by the symptoms with which the patient suffers.
      • Symptomatic treatment mitigates the acute disease.
    • Chronic disease in a person today is the reflection of adaptation of the patient to the unfavorable nurture during his life time.
        • Known by the ultimate cause, the basic susceptibility profile of the patient , and not by suffering with which the patient presents.
        • A Holistic treatment involving a Constitutional remedy is required to keep the disease process, the miasma , in check.
    • Drug disease is the inherent biological nature of a substance liberated by the process of dynamisation (successive dilution + agitation) and is analogous to MEP portraits.
    • The rightly selected sweet pill can become a panacea in Homoeopathy.
