I am working on a case study which presents a question that has me puzzled and struggling. The scenario is this: The tissue surrounding the incision of a new tracheostomy is edematous. As you palpate the area, your fingers sink into the skin, and you auscultate a popping sound through your stethoscope. What does this mean?I have searched through my book, PowerPoints, and the internet and can't find an answer as to what it means and what actions I'm supposed to take.PLEASE HELP!!!
