Objectives: Standards of care for total laryngectomy (TL) patients in the postoperative period have not been established. Perioperative care remains highly variable and perhaps primarily anecdotally based. The aim of this study was to survey members of the American Head and Neck Society to capture management practices in the perioperative care of TL patients Bedside Care. Post-op, the stoma and TEP will require more frequent care due to secretion accumulation. Trach care is done once a shift. Remove the lary tube and clean with 1 part peroxide/1 part saline. Clean the surrounding area removing dried secretions with tweezer size forceps. While the lary tube is out, make sure you can visualize the TEP and the IAL web site. Look at the web site for your laryngectomy club or the cancer society.
