@msherfinski, I suggest that you post a new discussion in the Head & Neck Cancer group about managing a Trach, including dealing with odors. Other members of the Head & Neck Cancer group will have helpful suggestions. Post a new discussion here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/head-neck-cancer/

Mark, since you will be staying overnight in Rochester, what precautions do you plan to take regarding food and hotel? Have you thought about calling ahead to find out if they have a fridge or what cleaning and santitizing protocols they are practising?
