This is a service for families in Intensive Care who have a loved one in intensive care who’s approaching their end of life on a ventilator with a breathing tube/endotracheal tube.
Rather than having the breathing tube/endotracheal tube removed in Intensive Care when your loved one is facing an incurable critical illness, our service can remove the breathing tube/endotracheal tube at home for your loved one.
This process is called “one-way extubation”. “Extubation” stands for removal of the breathing tube/endotracheal tube.
A “one -way extubation”, simply describes the process of the breathing tube/endotracheal tube being removed when your loved one is approaching their end of life.
It’s so much nicer to do this at home compared to a sterile hospital/ICU environment and gives you and your family choice!
Furthermore, 75% of people in first world countries want to die at home and yet, less than 15% actually do approach their end of life at home!
Our service also supports Intensive Care Units who want to offer Patients and their families “one-way extubations” at home instead of Intensive Care!
