Advance your assessment, treatment, and outcomes for infants requiring a tracheostomy tube. Medical co-morbidities associated with infants requiring a tracheostomy tube, implications of the tracheostomy tube on oral feeding/motor development, integrating physical rehabilitation treatments and respiratory therapy interventions to maximize infant outcomes with oral feeding, motor development, and daily activities related to play skills will be discussed. Expand your practice by integrating evidence into your clinical decision-making including reading/interpreting vent settings during interventions for objective assessments of infants that are intubated or have tracheostomy tubes. Expanded lecture/lab section devoted to infants with tracheostomy tubes include oral motor, feeding interventions, postural control, manual cough facilitation, positioning/handling, integrating use of a one-way valve into treatment, weaning respiratory support, and durable medical equipment recommendations for infant/family in preparation for home discharge. This course will focus on infants up to 12 months corrected gestational age with information applicable to clinicians working in the NICU, PICU, transitional pediatric care, in-home therapy, early intervention, and outpatient clinics.
- Differentiate medical pathology from normal development for infants requiring a tracheostomy tube.
- Determine how the placement of a tracheostomy tube influences the development of oral feeding and postural control skills.
- Identify three risk factors for feeding dysfunction associated with oral feeding an infant with a tracheostomy.
- Apply at least two feeding strategies for infants requiring a tracheostomy tube to improve sensory and motor performance with oral feeding.
- Apply at least two postural control strategies for infants with a tracheostomy tube to improve their ability to utilize vocal cord movement to enhance their cough, phonation, and gross motor movement.
- Choose an individualized care plan for an infant using the provided case study with tracheostomy tubes for improved outcomes with oral feeding, cough facilitation, motor control, and phonation
Clinicians in the NICU, PICU, transitional pediatric care, in-home therapy, early intervention and outpatient clinics. Infants up to 12 months corrected gestational age.
