Tracoe Twist

Tracoe® Experc

Percutaneous tracheostomy system

Tracoe® experc offers the following features:

  • Dilation is carried out according to the well-tried Ciaglia technique
  • The atraumatic inserter ensures a stepless transition between the inserter and tracheostomy tube minimising the risk of injuring the trachea during tube insertion
  • The safety stop at the neck flange on the atraumatic inserter avoids insertion of the tube too deeply, thereby minimising the risk of injury
  • The separately available Tracoe twist, Tracoe twist Plus and Tracoe vario tracheostomy tubes with atraumatic inserter can also be used for reinsertion or the changing of tubes after percutaneous tracheostomy

Featuring the unique NO STEP insertion device ensuring a smooth tracheostomy

A proven technique

  • Percutaneous dilation tracheostomy has established itself as a standard procedure in intensive care medicine. The Ciaglia technique is the one most widely used. The Tracoe experc system is based on this proven method. There is no need to learn a new procedure. The sets are tailored for the use of unfenestrated and fenestrated tubes including tubes with subglottic suction line (Tracoe twist, Tracoe twist Plus and Tracoe vario, not fenestrated).

The Innovation

  • Inserting the Tracheostomy tube can be a challenge. The Tracoe experc sets deliver the solution in the form of the unique, patented atraumatic inserter. A silicone sleeve at the tip of the insertion instrument smoothly bridges the gap between the inserter and the tube. This allows the tube to be inserted easily and safely.

Option for Reinsertion

  • For difficult reinsertion situations unfenestrated and fenestrated Tracoe twist, twist Plus and unfenestrated Tracoe vario tubes are available. They are available individually premounted with the atraumatic inserter. The Seldinger guide wire should be used in any difficult situation.

The Experc Percutaneous Kit is available with:

  • Tracoe twist tracheostomy tubes with atraumatic inserter
  • Tracoe twist Plus tracheostomy tubes with atraumatic inserter
  • Tracoe vario tracheostomy tubes with atraumatic inserter

The tracheostomy tubes with atraumatic inserter are also available separately.

Percutaneous dilation tracheostomy sets with atraumatic inserter

The special feature of the Tracoe experc percutaneous dilation tracheostomy set is the atraumatic inserter of the tracheostomy tube.

  • Its tip has a folding silicone sleeve that smoothly bridges over the inserter and end of the tube (fig1 ).
  • The inserter has a precise fit into the tube and a stop at the 15mm connector. Once the tube is in the trachea the inserter is pulled out of the tube. In doing so the silicone sleeve rolls back to allow easy removal (fig 2).
  • The atraumatic inserter ensures a stepless transition between the inserter and tracheostomy tube minimising the risk of injuring the trachea during tube insertion.
  • The atraumatic inserter is pre-loaded and should not • be removed from the tube prior to use.
  • The separately available Tracoe twist, with atraumatic inserter can also be used for reinsertion or the changing of tubes after percutaneous tracheostomy.
