Patented Precision Work
TRACOE vario is a soft, flexible (DEHP-free) tube with a patented adjustable neck flange. By means of a practical push-button mechanism, the flange can be moved and adjusted to the individual patient. In this way, the correct length can be achieved. A scale ensures the exact positioning of the neck flange in preparation for a tube change. Positioning the flange by using the grey push-button and locking it by moving the orange lever upwards. Since
no screw closure is used, no pressure at all is exerted on the trachea.
The flexible wings on the flange of the TRACOE vario tube can be adjusted independently of one another, providing further opportunities to accommodate the individual patient’s anatomy. The right solution for each patient can be selected from the eight types of TRACOE vario tracheostomy tube available: whether reinforced with a metal spiral, made of transparent plastic (with radio-opaque contrast lines), fenestrated, with or without a cuff. The extra-long TRACOE vario XL with metal spiral and TRACOE vario extract in transparent plastic equipped with a subglottic suction line, both with cuffs, are special varieties – naturally also available in the standard lengths.
ORANGE packaging identifies the TRACOE vario product family. A further colour, such as RED with STRIPES in the example, indicates a cannula type, here the REF 451. The STRIPES indicate that the cannula tube is spiral reinforced. 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 451-08 for the size 8 mm.
The colour coding makes stock keeping easier.
