The AirLife Basic Tracheostomy Kit includes a set of components that are ideal for basic tracheostomy care. The kit is an excellent complement for tracheostomy suction kits that only include tubes and other suctioning equipment but nothing to preserve them. The Tracheostomy Care Kit is ideal for hospitals, nursing centers, etc. and even for experienced people who regularly administer tracheostomy procedures at home.
The care kit includes two cotton-tipped applicators that are used to clean the trach area. The kit also includes three pipe cleaners and a brush with thick bristles that can be used to clean the inside, the outside, and the creases of the trach tubes. The four gauze sponges provided in the kit are used to protect the skin and prevent chafing due to the tracheostomy tube. The sponges are designed with a cavity to accommodate the tube. The trach tube is secured firmly around a patient’s neck using a twill tape that is included in the AirLife 3T4691A Tracheostomy Care Kit. With a length of thirty four inches, it is suitable for a wide range of neck sizes.
To maintain the sterility of all the components, a pair of vinyl gloves are provided for the user to wear while handling the equipment. Some components of the procedure have to be soaked in a solution for sterilization or cleansing. These can then be placed on the water resistant towel provided in the CardinalHealth Basic Tracheostomy Care Kit to be air dried.
