Title
(EN) TRACHEOSTOMY SUPPORT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE SUPPORT DE TRACHÉOSTOMIE
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed are materials, articles, devices, and methods for manufacture thereof that pertain to a tracheostomy support system. The tracheostomy support system can eliminate torque on the tracheostomy tube and offload pressure caused by the tracheostomy tube on the neck skin of a patient. Additionally, the tracheostomy support system can indicate when pressure or moisture on the skin is at an unsafe level that may predispose the patient to neck skin ulceration, breakdown, or infection. The tracheostomy support system can be automatically adjusted through a closed-loop feedback system or can be manually adjusted.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des matériaux, des articles, des dispositifs et des procédés de fabrication de ceux-ci qui concernent un système de support de trachéostomie. Le système de support de trachéostomie peut éliminer le couple sur le tube de trachéotomie et décharger la pression provoquée par le tube de trachéotomie sur la peau du cou d'un patient. De plus, le système de support de trachéostomie peut indiquer lorsque la pression ou l'humidité sur la peau est à un niveau dangereux qui peut prédisposer le patient à une ulcération, un claquage ou une infection de la peau du cou. Le système de support de trachéostomie peut être réglé automatiquement par l'intermédiaire d'un système de rétroaction en boucle fermée ou peut être réglé manuellement.
