The Tracoe Vario, and Vario XL are single-lumen, soft and flexible tracheostomy tubes with variably adjustable neck flange. A practical pressure mechanism allows the neck flange to be moved and adjusted individually for each patient. This makes length adjustment possible.
A wide range of adjustment options
The Tracoe Vario, and Vario XL have a variably adjustable neck flange. Using a practical pressure mechanism, the neck flange can be moved on the cannula and positioned individually for each patient. By moving the orange lever, the neck flange is locked in the next step. This eliminates the need to lock it in place by turning it. A scale helps to position the adjustable flange, e.g. in preparation for a tube change. The flexible wings at the neck flange of the Tracoe Vario, and Vario XL tracheostomy tubes are individually adjustable. This offers further possibilities to take individual anatomical requirements into account.
Tracheostomy tube features
The Vario, and Vario XL tracheostomy tubes are available with and without spiral-reinforcement, with and without low-pressure cuff, in standard length or extra-long. In addition, 2 tracheostomy tubes with subglottic suction are available, the Tracoe Vario Extract and Vario XL extract. They are also approved for ACV – Above Cuff Vocalization or « speaking under ventilation ».
All Tracoe Extract tracheostomy tubes with subglottic suction have the suction opening at the lowest possible point, directly above the low-pressure cuff. Secretion accumulations in the subglottic space can thus be suctioned there. This reduces the risk of bacterially contaminated secretions passing into the lower airways. The subglottic suction of the Vario Extract and Vario XL extract tracheostomy tubes is embedded in the tube wall.
