Montgomery Long Term Cannula

The Montgomery® Long-Term Cannula is the result of many years of clinical research and design. Used to replace either the Short-Term Cannula or a standard tracheostomy tube, the cannula features a 27° angled flange to ensure that the tube rests horizontally when seated in the trachea - nothing protrudes into the trachea. Made from flexible medical grader silicone, the tube has a highly polished surface, which permits and encourages growth of epithelium both from the trachea and the skin of the tracheostomy tract. Once inserted, a ring washer is applied, ensuring patient safety. The tube can be trimmed to a low profile. A dual-purpose groove along the axis of the tube rests in the "6 o'clock" position for orientation and serves as a drainage vent.

Long-Term Cannula diameters correspond to standard tracheostomy tube sizes 4, 6, 8, and 10. The stoma length in millimeters is measured along the inferior aspect of the stoma from the anterior tracheal wall to the outside skin. These measurements are made easily using the STOMEASURE™. Each Long-Term Cannula Set includes the tube, two plug/ring sets, and product information.
