I researched the availability of affordable tracheostomy skills trainers that could be purchased in quantity so students could practice basic tracheostomy skills remotely, either with direction from faculty via an online platform, or while following along with an instructional video or an acceptable skills checklist. I was unable to locate any tracheostomy models that were less than $700, a price that was completely cost-prohibitive. As a simulationist, I imagined that a low-cost device could be created to house a tracheostomy tube in a manner that could provide adequate realism to support the students' practice of relevant tracheostomy skills remotely. They could record themselves performing the skills and the recording could be uploaded to the faculty. Or the devices could be used in a classroom or skills lab while all students could practice simultaneously, rather than waiting for one trainer to become available.
