... secretions and wondering if should change to every 8 hours instead?
Wait, 4 times a day would be every 6 hrs. I see what you're asking about the nebulizer making the secretions worse. My question is are the secretions thick? What color are they? Can you suction them easily. Is it just normal trach secretions increased or is it with other symptoms of illness like a fever. Does he cough on his own? What size trach? I always found the girl I took care of to have increased secretions when the pollen count went up. She still needed her nebulizer treatments but it seemed I suctioned her all day. We gave her allergy pills they didn't always help. I spent a lot of time cleaning her off too. Sometimes there isn't a lot you can do about it.
