VENTILATING – SENSITISING – COMMUNICATING – WEANING – DECANNULATING
The TRACOE twist and TRACOE twist plus tracheostomy tubes are used as ventilation and therapy tubes with inner cannulas in hospitals, rehabilitation, and community settings. A special feature of TRACOE twist tubes is the anatomically shaped neck flange that moves in both the vertical and horizontal axes. Patients can turn their heads freely, without the tracheostomy tube exerting any strong pressure on the trachea. It is easy to attach or exchange the neck strap while the tube is in situ.

Sizing of the two product lines always corresponds to the inside diameter of the inner cannula. For example, when it says 8 mm on the neck flange, the lumen of the inner cannula is 8 mm.

For breathing and ventilation, the lumen should be as large as possible – that is why the internal measurement is given. For the patient, every millimetre counts. If the diameter of the lumen is reduced from 8 to 7 mm, the air supply is 41 % less and there is a huge increase in the effort required to breathe. Changing from 8 to 9 mm increases the air supply by 60 %, while the effort required to breathe remains the same.*

Fourteen types of DEHP-free tubes in the TRACOE twist and twist plus product lines offer the wide choice needed to select the best tube for each patient. Cuffed tubes, also with subglottic suction lines, are the first choice for use in percutaneous dilatation procedures – see the TRACOE percutan line.* Hagen-Poiseuille equation on laminar flow

Color Coding

GREEN packaging identifies the TRACOE twist plus product family. A further colour, such as BLUE with a "+" sign in the example, indicates a cannula type, here the REF 312. The + helps differentiate between the two twist families. This colour coding represents the cannula's special characteristics. You can see all colour codes and their meanings below.The families/types can be sorted according to these colours. The size of the cannula is indicated at the end of the REF number, for example REF 312-08 for the size 8 mm.The colour coding makes stock keeping easier.
