Tracheotomy instruments are used in a surgical procedure called tracheotomy or tracheostomy, which involves creating an opening in the neck and trachea (windpipe) to provide an alternative airway for breathing. Some common tracheotomy instruments include:

  1. Tracheostomy tube: A tube inserted into the trachea to maintain a clear airway.
  2. Tracheal dilators: Used to dilate the opening in the trachea to allow the tracheostomy tube to be inserted.
  3. Tracheal hook: Used to stabilize the trachea during the procedure.
  4. Tracheal spreader: Used to hold open the tracheal incision during the procedure.
  5. Retractors: Used to retract the muscles and other tissues surrounding the trachea to expose the surgical field.
  6. Suction catheter: Used to remove secretions or other debris from the trachea.
  7. Forceps: Used to manipulate or remove foreign objects from the trachea.

These instruments are typically made of surgical-grade stainless steel and are designed to be sterile and single-use to prevent infection.
