Trach and Vent Patient Care
As patients who have experienced this operative procedure know, a tracheostomy is an opening that is created surgically through the neck into the trachea (windpipe) to allow direct access to the breathing tube. It is commonly done in an operating room under general anesthesia.
A tube is usually placed through this opening to provide an airway and to remove secretions from the lungs. Breathing is done through the tracheostomy tube rather than through the nose and mouth, and the hole is made to help you breathe. A tracheostomy usually is temporary, although some patients may have one for a longer period of time.
At Pavilion Medical Home Health Care, our staff members are trained in the care and management of the tracheostomy and vent, and help to prevent complications such as infection around the tracheostomy tube or clogging of the tube. While this is a sensitive procedure that requires a deft touch, our team work diligently to proficiently aid in the facilitation of the patients’ recovery. Questions (Contact our staff)..
Congestive Heart Failure Management (CHF)
CHF affects almost 5 million people in the United States each year, according to the American Heart Association. It is more common in older people, but can affect anyone. This results in a reduction in blood supply to the different organs in the body, and can be caused by rheumatic fever, bacterial endocarditis, anemia, cardiovascular heart disease, and any other chronic health conditions.
At Pavilion Medical Home Health Care, our staff members are trained to recognize the symptoms of heart failure, which include:
• shortness of breath on exertion or with activity
• swelling of the feet, stomach area and ankles
• loss of appetite
Working in collaboration with the doctor, our experienced nursing team helps to manage the patient’s CHF through:
• Daily weight measurement
• Dietary restriction management
• Medication management
• Lifestyle modification
• Management of co-morbid factors (obesity, hypertension, diabetes, etc.)
• Progressive exercise
