The NTSP has been teaching staff from all backgrounds who are involved in tracheostomy and laryngectomy care for many years. We always rely heavily on feedback and have adapted our resources to be as easy to follow and understand as possible. One frequent request was to make as much material as possible available as videos or short demonstrations as long text descriptions of interventions are often difficult to understand.

Not all medical institutions allow YouTube access, so we have placed individual links to the videos here too in various formats. Please feel free to download them and use them for local teaching.
