Tracheotomy:"A tracheotomy is a surgical opening made into the trachea for airway management. A tracheostomy is the surgical creation of a stoma from the trachea to the overlying skin."

Tracheostomy:"Creation of an opening in the windpipe (trachea) that will function as an airway either temporarily or permanently. The opening bypasses obstructions that prevent air from being inhaled."

Tracheostomy:"General anesthesia is used. The neck is cleaned and draped. Incisions are made to expose the tough cartilage rings that make up the outer wall of the trachea. The surgeon then cuts two of these rings and inserts a tracheostomy tube."

A Bibliography on Pediatric Tracheostomy:"The authors began this project as a reference list to aid in the development of standards for the care of children with tracheostomies. Much of the published information is descriptive rather than data from controlled trials. However, the information available is substantial in amount. Syntheses of these data may be helpful to health care professionals.
