Trachi-Swabs feature a flexible plastic shaft to allow ease of movement inside the cannula.
When used with cleaning solutions the swabs will help to remove build up of mucus and keep the tube surfaces clean. The foam heads of the swabs are better suited for cleaning tracheostomy tubes than cotton tipped swabs as there are no loose fibres.
Available in three sizes. The smaller size swab is recommended for paediatric tubes.
Trachi-Swabs are supplied in packs of 50. To help reduce contamination risks the swabs are packed in 5 envelopes of 10. This helps to keep swabs clean and ready for use, which is an important point in the hospital ward environment.
