Trachi-Dress F

The Trachi-Dress F is a high performance polyurethane Tracheostomy/ Cannula foam dressing.

It is designed to help protect the skin surrounding a Tracheostoma against abrasion, reducing irritation and/or infection of the skin.

It absorbs secretions from the Tracheostoma and acts as a mechanical barrier between the skin surrounding the Tracheostoma and the neckplate and flanges of the tracheostomy tube.

  • Helps to keep underlying skin dry.
  • Minimum adhesion increases patient comfort and minimalises pain when changing dressing.
  • Draws secretions away from the skin.
  • Retains absorbed secretions.
  • Adds stability to dressing when saturated, preventing curling around the edges.
  • Skin-coloured and available in 2 sizes.

It includes an advanced polyurethane foam, incorporating a perforated soft PU skin contact layer and improved peelability. This PU layer adds a new dimension to tracheostomy care.

Key design features:

A non-stick polyurethane film contact layer, which is non-adherent and permeable to fluid. This helps to keep underlying skin dry and provides minimum adhesion to the stoma site, which increases patient comfort and minimalises pain at dressing change.

High performing absorbent centre layer composed of Polyurethane Foam. This draws secretions away from the skin through a capillary action.

A semi-permeable Polyurethane Net-Film backing layer. This provides an effective seal which retains absorbed secretions from the Tracheostoma within the dressing whilst permitting the passage of air and water vapour to/from the underlying skin.

The Polyurethane Net layer gives additional stability to the shape of the dressing when saturated, by preventing it from curling up around the edges, away from the skin.

Benefits:

Trachi-Dress F sterile tracheostomy dressing is designed to help protect the skin surrounding a Tracheostoma against abrasion (which can lead to irritation and/or infection of the skin) by:
  • Absorbing secretions from the Tracheostoma; and
  • Acting as a mechanical barrier between the skin surrounding the Tracheostoma and the neckplate and flanges of the tracheostomy tube.
The dressing is skin-coloured and available in two different sizes (see technical details). The skin contacting layer (matt-structured appearance) is visibly distinct from the backing layer (shiny appearance). The dressing has a tri-layer laminate pad design.
