Our goal at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is to assist you in understanding the care, equipment, issues and maintenance involved with a tracheal T-tube. The Department of Otolaryngology has created this manual for you.
Here you will find information about:
- What you need to learn to care for your child
- What a T-tube is and why your child needs it
- Instructions on cleaning and suctioning the T-tube
- What to do in emergencies and emergency equipment to keep on hand
