Flexible Tracheoscopy

During a flexible tracheoscopy procedure, a small, thin flexible endoscope with a camera is inserted into your child’s lower airway through the tracheostomy tube. This procedure takes less than a minute and family members can also see the exam on a video monitor while it is being done. It can provide valuable information about regarding fit and size of the child’s current trach tube and the condition of the lower airway below the tube.
