Project Description

Parents of children who undergo installation of a temporary tracheostomy tube need an overview of the procedure, and how it will benefit their child. This illustration shows a pediatric trach placement in a non-threatening way, to show parents where it fits, with a clear look at the relevant anatomy.  The doctor can annotate the image to customize it for their child’s particular condition
