Complete kit prevents inadvertent disconnects;
stabilizes ventilator circuit and tracheostomy tube
The management of the tracheotomized patient supported with mechanical ventilation through a cuffed tracheostomy tube constitutes one of the clinician’s greatest responsibilities. Most patients that require a tracheostomy will need full to partial ventilatory support. There are several factors that need to be taken into consideration to ensure adequacy of ventilation for these patients. Primary is the prevention of inadvertent disconnect from the ventilator and stability of the ventilator circuit integrity at the patient interface with the ventilator circuit.
B&B TrachGuard is a long term tracheostomy tube holder and anti-disconnect device. The device fits adults and children with a neck circumference 7 to 18 inches. The TrachGuard is a complete kit allowing the clinician to secure the tracheostomy tube to the ventilator circuit and soft collar to keep the tracheostomy tube in position. The TrachGuard collar is hypo-allergenic, soft foam with superior holding powers.
