Long Term Cannula (Tracheostomy button)
The Long Term Cannula allows a secondary access to the airway.
It replaces the conventional tracheal cannula providing comfort, reducing the production of secretions and facilitating phonation.
Maintains the tracheostomal orifice permeable until its definitive closure is decided.
The tutor is fixed in the osteoma of the anterior tracheal wall and in the planes of the neck. Its introduction into the tracheal clearance is minimal.
The ring of the outer branch keeps it in the desired position.
Its external branch must be included permanently, so that the entrance of warm and humid air by the upper airway is possible.
Stening® provides detailed instructions for use with each device, including insertion and removal techniques, precautions, and postoperative care.
- After removing a cannula or a t-tube, to avoid a definitive closure of the osteoma.
- Preserve the tracheostomal hole.
Due to the characteristics of the production process, the measurements of the devices can vary by +/- 2%.
- Medical grade silicone
- Bevelled edges to prevent granulomas
- Surface of maximum softness to avoid adherence of secretions
- Transparent or Radiopaque
The osteoma button is introduced through the already formed tracheal orifice. Previously the surrounding skin will be sanitized and an antiseptic solution will be applied.
Since the long term cannula is small, the use of a lubricant is optional. The long term cannula is introduced by the stoma taking it between the thumb and forefinger or with the help of a curved forceps. Already in position and as it proceeds after the placement of the T-Tube model, the ring that fixes the lid, separated from the skin by a small gauze, will be applied. To remove the long term cannula, you must pull from its external branch.
The portion of the long term cannula (button) that lodges inside the trachea consists of two small fins that make accidental extraction difficult. Therefore, there is no part of the device inside the trachea, as it happens with a conventional cannula, so that the aspiration from the long term cannula’s interior is unnecessary.
It also has a lid on its external branch that makes the aspiration of tracheal secretions possible in cases where, due to the abundance of these, it is useful.
The product should not be reused because this can cause cross contamination.
A hollow device intended to be used routinely by a patient to prevent the narrowing of a tracheostoma during intermittent use of their tracheostomy or laryngectomy tube. It is a cylindrical synthetic polymer device designed for minimal intrusion beyond the tracheostomal orifice into which it is placed. This is a reusable device.
