Buchanan® Protectors

Laryngectomy and Tracheostomy Protector. Scientifically proven protection, filtration and humidification.

The Buchanan® Protector is a neck worn cover that provides filtration and delivers efficient heat and moisture exchange. Buchanan delivers unique benefits to neck breathers through effective product design and material composition – the crucial benefits delivered by the exclusive Hydrolox® 1 Foam specially designed for effective heat and moisture delivery.

These protectors are not designed to act as a bacterial viral filter; but will filter airborne particle down to 2.5 microns, which is the same filtration as the human nose.

The filtration ability of Buchanan® and Buchanan® Lite stoma protectors was tested against two competitor stoma covers in a laboratory (1). The graph below shows the percentage of
particles which each product was able to filter. Airborne particles equivalent to the size of mould spores, dust and some bacteria were tested (4.5 microns). These are small enough to be inhaled and reach the middle of the lungs.
