Tracoe long term tracheostomy tubes from Kapitex are designed to provide the wearer with a comfortable, flexible and safe uncuffed tube. Tracoe tubes come in a wide variety of styles and sizes, with and without speaking valves.
- The tubes are light, flexible – soft, pliable and harmless to tissue and adapt easily to the trachea.
- Tracoe tubes are made from implant tested medical grade PVC and feature rounded ends which prevent mucosal damage.
- Being transparent the Tracoe tubes are less noticeable and you can see through the whole length of the cannula.
- Tracoe tubes do not need to be removed for X ray or cobalt therapy, only the inner tube with speaking valves need to be detached.
- We have illustrated the main models – but O Neill Healthcare can supply special Tracoe tubes for any individual – any size or length can be made.
- Low profile fittings on the Tracoe tube enables the user to wear tracheostomy filters and protectors in comfort.
- Fenestrations Safety is a prime concern, and the design of the fenestrations within the Tracoe tubes are neat and smooth.
- Instead of one large fenestration, these tubes have a group of small holes which will help prevent granulation into the fenestration.
- Please note all Tracoe tubes with speaking valves are supplied with fenestrations, but tubes can be supplied without fenestrations by special order.
- Speaking valves are available in Types 103 and 104.
- Type 103 with a detachable valve
- Type 104 with a swivel valve which Can be moved sideways
- Both types are supplied with a spare inner cannula which can be used at night when the speech facility is not in use.
