We often receive stories about children using our tracheostomy tubes.
We often receive stories about children who use our tracheostomy tubes. This always touches us very much. Of course, we are especially happy when our products can help the children. For the care of children, products are required that correspond to the body size and the growth phase, but also to the dimensions and proportions of the airways.1
Moreover, children’s anatomical structures are highly sensitive and react strongly to manipulation and compression. A child’s trachea is narrow and very soft. A flexible, kink-resistant but soft tube is gentle on the tracheal mucosa and the stoma itself.1, 2, 3
The anatomical features of the large occiput and short neck, especially in infants, lead to anteflexion of the head and make access to the tracheostoma difficult.4 Proximally extended tracheostomy tubes reduce the risk of pressure points on the chin and chest and closure of the connector through the chin. They also offer the child more freedom of movement and the 15 mm connector of the tracheostomy tube is freely accessible.5, 6
The tracheostomy tubes from the TRACOE silcosoft line offer the above mentioned prerequisites in respect to their material combination of silicone and nitinol: the tubes are not only soft and flexible but, on account of the built-in nitinol spiral, are also dimensionally stable and kink-resistant. As the tracheostoma of neonates and infants is especially difficult to reach, TRACOE offers proximal extended tubes.
With kids, the length rather than the tube size grows, therefore the silcosoft tracheostomy tubes are available in many different length variants.
