A tracheostomy (or ostomy) is a surgical hole created in the front of the trachea (windpipe) to help a person breathe. It is used when there is an obstruction in the upper part of the trachea (such as a cancer), or when someone needs the assistance of a ventilator (breathing machine) for long periods of time.RelevanceIt can be temporary or permanent.
