Tracheostomy is performed to create a direct airway into the windpipe. This incision is surgically created to aspirate any secretions from the airway or to create a bypass route to deliver oxygen to the lungs.

Possible complications are neck scarring, disturbance to the vocal and swallowing functions, bleeding or infection.
