Airway management in the patient with tracheostomy spans the spectrum from intensive care to rehabilitation to home. It is important for clinicians to appreciate the nuances of care for patients with a tracheostomy. They must know when a tracheostomy is indicated, how to select the proper device, how to adequately humidify the inspired gas, how to manage the wound, and how to recognize when the tube can be removed (decannulation). This collection of papers published in RESPIRATORY CARE addresses these issues. Mastery of this information should improve the care of a patient with tracheostomy.
