Hi, it’s Patrik Hutzel from Intensivecarehotline.com with another quick tip for families in intensive care. Many families in intensive care come to us and they send an email and they say something along the lines of that their loved one is on a ventilator in Intensive Care and they don’t know what to expect next. Now, the first thing you need to know and understand when your loved one is on a ventilator, you need to make the distinction whether they are on a ventilator with a breathing tube or endotracheal tube that’s in their mouth or whether they’re on a ventilator with a tracheostomy. That’s a device that is stuck in your loved ones neck. Because the trajectory for both situation is very different, right? You loved one has a much higher chance to come off the ventilator if they have a breathing tube or an endotracheal tube because it’s for short term ventilation, whereas a tracheostomy is for long-term ventilation most of the time. So make that distinction first when you contact us and also have a look on our website and find out the case studies about when somebody has a breathing tube or somebody has a tracheostomy, because again, the trajectory for both situations is very different. That’s my tip for today. Check out our case [email protected] and I’ll be back with another quick tip in a few days. Take Care.
