A lot of that information, especially the documents, is almost 20 years old. Ventilators and trachs have come a long way since then. Maybe it is time for a new discussion so you can gather more current information.

Since this is your area of expertise (and you seem to enjoy enlightening and educating on this forum with your knowledge & experience) maybe you would be so kind to start a new thread with updated information. Maybe even in private duty nursing as most of the trach/vent cases involve shift work which is generally considered private duty. You have shared a lot of wisdom and I know this area is constantly updating technology and so many more patients (especially pediatrics) are now able to be managed at home with family & nursing/respiratory therapy support as a result.
