Title
(EN) TRACHEOSTOMY TUBE ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE TUBE DE TRACHEOSTOMIE
Abstract
(EN)
A tracheostomy tube assembly includes a flexible tube (1, 1') and a flexible introducer (2, 2') within the tube, the introducer having a passage (22) along its length for receiving a guidewire (9) inserted into the trachea (7) through a tracheostomy (6). The tube (1) has an inwardly-projecting collar (17, 17’) at its patient end (11), which engages an outwardly-projecting shoulder (24, 24’) on the introducer (2, 2’) so that the tube does not ride rearwardly along the introducer during insertion. The flexibility of the assembly is such that it can be inserted through the tracheostomy (6) while straight and then curves to follow the guidewire (9) as its patient end enters the trachea (7).
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un ensemble tube de trachéostomie comprenant un tube souple (1, 1') et un introducteur souple (2, 2') dans le tube, l’introducteur ayant un passage (22) le long de sa longueur destiné à recevoir un fil guide (9) introduit dans la trachée (7) par le biais d'une trachéostomie (6). Le tube (1) a un col émergeant vers l’intérieur (17, 17’) à l’extrémité patient (11), qui engage une épaule faisant saillie (24, 24’) sur l’introducteur (2, 2’) de sorte que le tube ne glisse pas vers l’arrière le long de l’introducteur pendant son introduction. La souplesse de l’ensemble est telle qu’il peut être introduit par la trachéostomie (6) alors qu’il est droit ; il se courbe ensuite pour suivre le fil guide (9) tandis que son extrémité patient entre dans la trachée (7).
