Title
(EN) TRACHEOSTOMY TUBE AND TECHNIQUE FOR USING THE SAME
(FR) TUBE POUR TRACHÉOTOMIE ET TECHNIQUE POUR L'UTILISER
Abstract
(EN)
A molded tracheostomy tube 10 may provide enhanced comfort for a patient. A unitary molded coating over areas of the tracheostomy tube 10 that come into contact with the patient's skin may prevent irritation. Further, the overmolding manufacturing process may allow the tracheostomy tube 10 assembly to incorporate features that allow for greater ease of movement for a patient, such as features that allow flexing at the connection point of the tracheostomy tube 10 to other medical devices.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un tube moulé pour trachéotomie (10) pouvant apporter un confort amélioré à un patient. Un revêtement moulé unitaire sur des zones dudit tube (10) qui entrent en contact avec la peau du patient peut éviter l'irritation. En outre, le procédé de fabrication du surmoulage permet que ledit ensemble tube (10) présente des caractéristiques facilitant le mouvement pour un patient, telles que des caractéristiques permettant la flexion au niveau du point de raccordement dudit tube (10) à d'autres dispositifs médicaux.
