In this video, paediatric otolaryngologist Mr Neil Bateman explains how tracheostomy suctioning can be safely performed during the pandemic using standard PPE. The addition of small 'tracheostomy-foam' HMEs can help to minimise the spread of aerosols. The risks are small and should not prevent children with tracheostomies accessing their usual educational or social facilities. All of the participants have given appropriate consent to feature in these videos.
