URRESTARAZU, Paula et al. Clinical consensus statement on the care of the child with a tracheostomy. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.1, pp.89-95. ISSN 0325-0075.

The care of the child with a tracheostomy deserves special attention because of the potential devastating airway compromise and because of the need of competent care by caregivers and professionals. The recommendations on tracheostomy care published are few and approaches are inconsistent among different institutions. This clinical consensus statement aims to improve care for children with tracheostomies. A literature search was conducted, reviewed and revised by this group of experts, who concurred with these statements, based on the best evidence available and taking into account the local context.
