Dale Medical Offers New Tracheostomy Tube Holders

A new line of functional and comfortable tracheostomy tube holders that are offered with designs for babies, kids and teens was introduced this week by Dale Medical Products Inc. of Plainville, MA.

Dale PediPrints Tracheostomy Tube Holders feature the new PediDucks, PediStars and Blue designs for babies, kids, and teens which are printed onto latex-free neckbands that are moisture repellent and ensure a snug fit. Providing fastener tabs that are shaped to easily fit into the flange of any size trach tube, these trach holders have rounded hook-and-loop back tab fasteners for sizing.

Offering greater comfort, convenience, and security than twill ties, Dale PediPrints Tracheostomy Tube Holders assure a snug fit for necks from neonate to 19.5 inches, the company said. PediDucks neckbands are ¾-inch wide. Pedi-Stars and Blue are each 1-inch and they fit all brands of tracheostomy tubes to help prevent accidental dislodgment or displacement, trachesophogeal fistula, tracheal stenosis, or airway ganuloma.
