The Innovation

The Feature of the TRACOE experc Set vario is the Atraumatic Insertion System of the Tubes. The system consists of two parts: the guiding catheter with silicone sleeve and the inserter for stabilisation and guidance of the tube. The silicone sleeve smoothly bridges over the gap in diameter between the end of the tube and the inserter thus minimising the risk of injury when inserting the tracheostomy tube into the trachea. The insertion system excels with a precise fit into the tube and a stop at the 15 mm connector. Once the tube is in the trachea first the inserter is removed and only then the guiding catheter with silicone sleeve. By doing so the silicone sleeve flaps back and the guiding catheter can be removed easily. The Seldinger guide wire can be removed either prior or together with the guiding catheter. Under no circumstances the guiding catheter must be removed first.

The Benefits

  • Dilation is performed using the proven Ciaglia one-steptechnique.
  • The atraumatic insertion system smoothes over the gap in diameter between the end of the tube and the inserter. This minimises the risk of injury when inserting the tracheostomy tube into the trachea.
  • The stop at the 15 mm connector prevents the inserter from being inserted too far into the tube, which additionally reduces the risk of injury.
  • The separately available tubes with insertion system can also be used for reinsertion into a percutaneously created tracheostoma and/or change tubes; if necessary in combination with the Seldinger guide wire.
