Brand: Niche Healthcare

A tracheostomy tube with an inner cannula is a specialized medical device used to establish and maintain a secure airway for patients who require long-term or temporary respiratory support through a tracheostomy.

 

Description

A tracheostomy tube with an inner cannula is a specialized medical device used in patients who have undergone a tracheostomy, a surgical procedure where an incision is made in the neck to create a direct airway access to the trachea.

Here’s how it typically works:

  • Tracheostomy Tube: The main component of the device is the tracheostomy tube itself, which is inserted into the trachea through the stoma (the opening in the neck). This tube allows for breathing and airway management.
  • Inner Cannula: Inside the tracheostomy tube, there’s an inner cannula, which is a removable component. It can be easily taken out and cleaned or replaced as needed.

The presence of an inner cannula offers several advantages:

  • Ease of Cleaning: Since the inner cannula can be removed, it facilitates easier cleaning and maintenance of the tracheostomy tube. This is particularly important for preventing infections and maintaining airway hygiene.
  • Reduced Risk of Occlusion: The inner cannula helps prevent the tracheostomy tube from becoming blocked by secretions or debris. If the inner cannula gets blocked, it can be quickly removed and replaced with a clean one, without the need to change the entire tracheostomy tube.
  • Flexibility in Suctioning: Healthcare providers can easily suction the airway through the inner cannula to remove mucus or secretions, without disturbing the placement of the main tracheostomy tube.

Tracheostomy tubes with inner cannulas are commonly used in both short-term and long-term airway management for patients who require prolonged ventilatory support, have upper airway obstructions, or have difficulty breathing due to various medical conditions. The presence of an inner cannula adds convenience and versatility to the management of the tracheostomy site while ensuring optimal patient care.
