Bobbi Kristina undergoes tracheotomy

Bobbi Kristina Brown has undergone a tracheotomy.

Doctors at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta performed what they call the "normal procedure" on the 21-year-old to rearrange her breathing tube.

The daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston was found floating face-down in the bathtub of her home in Roswell, Georgia on January 31 and there has been little change in her condition ever since.

'She is still critical and we don't know what the outcome will be'

"The tracheotomy is a different place for the tube to go. Everything else remains the same. It's a waiting game. The family is hoping and waiting," a source close to the family told People magazine.

According to the insider, the procedure does not indicate there has been any change in Bobbi Kristina's status. She was placed in a medically induced coma upon hospitalisation and family members have revealed there has been little to no change in her condition in the past two weeks.

"It's a normal procedure to have the tracheotomy because if you have a breathing tube down there for a long time, it can cause an infection," the source explained. "She is still critical and we don't know what the outcome will be. No-one is giving up on this kid."

Bobbi Kristina's father and grandmother, Cissy Houston, are maintaining a bedside vigil at her bedside. However, another family source told People that the tracheotomy has reminded her loved ones just how critical her condition still is.

"There's a medical reason behind [the tracheotomy], but it's making things clear to everyone how serious this is. Even if she wakes up, there's a possibility that this could do some damage to her vocal chords, I hear," the source explained.

"This is happening because there are no other options. If there was another way, Bobby would do it."
