Features of TRACOE purofoam Tracheostomy Dressings
The TRACOE purofoam tracheostomy dressings are made of highly absorbent open pore polyurethane foam (a).
The foam has a non-sticking layer (b) on the side facing the tracheostoma which allows quick absorption of liquids into the foam’s core. A net-like film stabilises the purofoam dressings and thus reduces the deformation with strong secretion after the moisture absorption. The opposite side is covered with a skin coloured, vapour permeable coating which will prevent leakage of secretions and bacteria through the front of the dressing (c).
Due to the circular opening and the zigzag slit the dressing can be easily replaced with a new one whilst wearing the tracheostomy tube. As the dressing does not stick to the skin, it can be removed and replaced without causing trauma or pain. The TRACOE purofoam tracheostomy dressing can be used to dress a newly established or an existing, irritated tracheostoma, as well as healed but weeping tracheostomas and any other kind of artificial orifice. This dressing meets modern standards of moist wound treatment.
