Trachi-Dress from Kapitex is a tracheostomy/ cannula dressing, dedicated to keeping the tracheal stoma area dry and make tracheostomy management easier.
Trachi-Dress is a major advancement on traditional gauze and foam style dressings. Each one consists of a skin contact layer, absorption layer and backing layer.
Trachi-Dress absorbs mucus, reducing the risk of mucus sitting on the skin underneath a tracheostomy tube. Because mucus is absorbed into the body of the dressing away from the skin – skin excoriation is minimised and the risk of an infected area developing is reduced.
The dressing comprises of three layers, each of which plays an important role.
This skin contact layer is non-adherent. The polyethylene film helps prevent tissue adhering to the dressing – thereby aiding removal when changing the dressing. This layer also helps keep the skin dry.
This is the absorbent layer. The middle section is constructed of viscose to ensure maximum absorbency, through capillary action which draws mucus away from the skin.
This viscose/polyethylene combination provides an effective seal which retains mucus within the body of the dressing.
