Our proven TRACOE mini tracheostomy tube is a soft, thin-walled and dimensionally stable PVC-tracheostomy tube. The neck flange has a bevelled bottom and large eyelets. It comes with the practical ring obturator and a soft children's neck strap. There are 12 different sizes of TRACOE mini tracheostomy tubes: 4 for neonatal and infant use and 8 for paediatric use.
TRACOE silcosoft are soft, flexible and spiral-reinforced tracheostomy tubes made of silicone, with or without TRACOE H₂O Cuff and with or without proximal extension. It has a slightly upward curved, elastic neck flange with eyelets that are specially reinforced. This prevents tearing of the material by a neck strap e.g. with hook-and-loop fastener. There is a neck strap inlet on the underside of the eyelets so that the neck flange rests on the skin when worn.
The soft TRACOE H₂O cuff of the TRACOE silcosoft lies flush with the cannula when deflated, thus allowing the largest possible free expiratory lumen between the tracheostomy tube and the tracheal wall. Stimulation, vocalization or communication are therefore possible. It is filled with sterile water and blocked according to the "Minimal Occlusive Volume Technique". The cuff serves as a seal to prevent aspiration of food and saliva from the pharynx or undesired escape of air during ventilation.
The inflation line of the TRACOE H₂O Cuff of the TRACOE silcosoft is embedded in the material of the tube wall. The tube is not bulky and thus reduces the risk of lesions. Another advantage is that this provides more space for expiratory airflow.
The practical ring obturator is included for the standard lengths of TRACOE mini and TRACOE silcosoft. It is easy to grasp and enables a safe insertion of the tube. The large ring opening allows for quick removal. The mouldable obturator for the length variants of the TRACOE mini is fitted with a transparent cap. The cap prevents the attachment of other aids or, for example, a breathing tube. The mouldable obturator for the proximally longer tubes and for the length variants of the TRACOE silcosoft is easily visible due to the orange cap with clear marking for orientation.
Since children’s anatomy changes rapidly due to their growth, we offer - in addition to the well-thought-out length concept for standard sizes - different length variants of the TRACOE mini and the TRACOE silcosoft tracheostomy tubes. The length of the tube rather than the size grows with the child. Many length variants are available from stock.
The color coding and symbols on the outer packaging are intended to help identify the property(ies) of the present tracheostomy tube at first glance. All TRACOE mini and TRACOE silcosoft outer packaging is labelled accordingly. This facilitates quicker access, regardless of the mostly very different storage options and systems.
