Neonatal-Infant Tracheostomy Tube Holder Designed to Comfort Parent and Child

A new neonatal-infant tracheostomy tube holder that features a friendly duck pattern, reportedly easy fastener tabs and a moisture repellent lining is being introduced by Dale Medical Products Inc.
The Dale PediDucks Tracheostomy Tube Holder is ready to use and provides fastener tabs that are shaped to easily fit into the flange of any size trach tube and has a rounded hook-and-loop back tab fastener for sizing. Featuring a neck band with a duck pattern that comforts parents, children and clinicians, this latex-free holder has a moisture repellent lining and is a very effective way to secure tracheostomy tubes.
Designed to prevent accidental dislodgment or displacement of the trach tube, trachesophogeal fistula, tracheal stenosis or airway ganuloma, the Dale PediDucks Tracheostomy Tube Holder eliminates the frustrations of using twill ties and other types of holders designed to minimize secondary complications.
