Tracoe® Vario - numerous adaptabilities

(a) A length marker ensures the exact positioning of the neck flange in preparation to change tubes (b) As an optional precaution the neck flange can be securely locked by pulling up the orange lever system (c) pliable wings on the flange can be adjusted independently of one another. This helps to meet the unique anatomical requirements of each patient.

The unique Tracoe vario

  • Tracoe vario - the flexible tube with the patented adjustable neck flange. By means of a practical locking mechanism, the neck flange can be moved and adjusted individually to any patient.
  • A length marker ensures the exact positioning of the neck flange in preparation to change tubes (a).The flange will move by depressing the grey side panels on the flange. The flange is fixed immediately after it is released. Additionally the neck flange will be securely locked by pulling up the orange lever (b).

A Perfect Fit

  • The pliable wings on the flange can be adjusted independently of one another (c). This provides additional possibilities for meeting the unique anatomical requirements of each patient.
  • Tracoe vario tracheostomy tubes are made of clear plastic and come in several versions. Reinforced with metal spiral, or non reinforced (with an x-ray contrast line) with or without low pressure cuff, with subglottic suction line and in an extra long version.

Safety & Security

Each Tracoe vario tube is supplied with an obturator and a wide adjustable neck strap as well as a tube info card with peel- off stickers on front and back. The neck strap is also available separately.

Now with subglottic suction

  • Accumulated subglottic secretions can be suctioned off at the lowest point, in other words, right above the cuff. This reduces the risk of bacterially contaminated secretions entering the lower respiratory tract and the risk of developing aspiration pneumonia.
  • The suction line is integrated into the wall of the tube to avoid any pressure marks in the tracheostoma. Via this line, secretions can be suctioned off. Tracoe vario tracheostomy tubes with subglottic suctioning. Ref 470 / 470-P / 471
