Tracheostomy tubes are rarely used, even in dedicated emergency clinics; but now and then they are essential to save an animal’s life. This 60 minute eCPD tutorial for veterinary nurses looks at the reasons we may consider a tracheostomy necessary, how we would place the tube, and just as importantly how we manage the tube and nurse the patients to avoid potentially fatal complications.
