The tracheal dilator is made of stainless steel. The tips of the tracheal dilator are specially shaped and rounded, minimizing the risk of injury when inserting it into the tracheostoma. Due to the special design, the three spreadable wings, it enables an even opening in all directions of the tracheostoma during cannula changing. When pressing the handles together it opens the tracheal dilator and dilates the body orifice. This makes inserting the tracheostomy tube considerably easier.
The tracheal dilator should always be close to hand for a fast cannula change.
The tracheal dilator is also indispensable in emergencies, in order to secure the airway.
A smaller version for children is also available.
