Hi, my mum has been in icu now on sedation and ventilation for 3 days. They have tried weaning but not gone as well as hoped. My dad has spoken to them on the phone this morning and they are considering a tracheotomy however the the staff have not really explained to him why. I have tried to speak to a consultant but I always get the same response, busy !! Does anyone know the best way of arranging a meeting with her doctor/consultant. Some of the nurses are fab but I want to understand the full picture. Please can anyone advise me ?? Thanks
