Portex Cuffed DIC Fenestrated Tracheostomy Tubes, by Smiths Medical, are designed with a disposable inner cannula. This tracheostomy tube will allow the patient to breathe through the fenestration and is good for those transitioning from ventilation to unassisted breathing. This Portex design includes a one-piece outer tube that comes with a 15mm ISO termination and is made as part of the tube. The disposable inner cannula allows for easy removal of mucus build-up and helps reduce the possibility of post-procedural infection.
And like the fenestrated disposable inner cannula Portex tube, these cuffed trach tubes have color-coded inner cannula that correspond to the inner diameter measurements. These come with a soft, pliable flange for patient comfort and to help the caregiver view the stoma site for cleaning. The Portex Cuffed Fenestrated Trach tube comes with an abturator, a Velcro trach tube holder, a color-coded inner cannula, and a decannulation cap.
For another Portex line of cuffed trach tubes, look to the Sims Portex Cuffed DIC Trach Tube that is unfenestrated.
