Quick tip for families in Intensive Care: Can Ventilation Weaning With Tracheostomy Be Done At Home?
Hi, it’s Patrik Hutzel, from intensivecarehotline.com with another quick tip for families in intensive care. Yesterday, I was talking to a client and she has their father in intensive care with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
Father has been ventilated now for over six weeks and has been in intensive care for that long. He’s obviously got a tracheostomy because he can’t come off the ventilator and she’s basically asking, can weaning off the ventilator with Guillain-Barre syndrome be done at home. The short answer is yes. It can be done at home and services like intensive care at home have done this successfully many times.
So, go and get in contact with intensivecareathome.com. Check out their website intensivecareathome.com. They can help you take your father home on a ventilator with tracheostomy. It saves 50% of the cost of an ICU bed. And it also provides your father and your family with quality of life because basically the intensive care services that your dad is currently having in the hospital will be coming to your home and to your dad’s home.
It’s a win-win situation and mainly your dad can be weaned off the ventilator in a holistic and family friendly environment and patient friendly environment, of course.
So, go and check out intensivecareathome.com. I’ll be talking to you in a few days. Take care for now.
