Tracheostomy Management

The use of tracheostomy has increased in recent years. The standardized management of patients with tracheostomy tubes is a priority for UnityPoint Health - Des Moines to ensure patients receive coordinated and safe care while in our facilities. For this reason, we are providing resources to inform providers what UnityPoint Health - Des Moines stocks for equipment, such as brands and sizes of tracheostomy tubes, as well as educational materials to use in providers' practices when discussing tracheostomy tubes with patients and their caregivers.
