Manage episode 292816581 series 2586548
Join Yvonne Brandenburg, RVT, VTS SAIM and Jordan Porter RVT, LVT, VTS SAIM as we talk about:
- We are starting near the top of the respiratory system; the larynx. What is happening with the larynx when it decides it just wants to stop working, is it muscles or nerves? We get down and dirty, and even discuss surgical options for these cases. Who knew there were so many options?!
Question of the Week
- What is your experience with tracheostomy tubes; placement or management, and how did it go?
