Adding Quality of Life to Airway Management

Clinically Proven

Buchanan Lite — better breathing, better stoma care

The Buchanan® Lite — clincially proven to be better than other stoma covers.

Cardiff University Hospital have carried out laboratory tests in accordance with ISO 9360* comparing Buchanan Lite Protectors with a competitor's stoma cover. As a result of the combination of materials, the Buchanan® Lite Protector significantly out-performed the competition!

Moisture Retention

The Buchanan Protector was found to provide 44% more moisture retention than ordinary covers. This is a considerable difference in performance.
