Tracheostomy and Tube Sites
Before applying the dressing, cleanse the wound area with an appropriate wound cleanser such as Vashe® Wound Solution. Fit Drawtex® Tracheostomy around the tube; it does not matter which side is in contact with the skin. Interlock the dressing above the tube. If required, the dressing may be cut to fit the tube shape.
Once the dressing is saturated it should be changed immediately. Remove the retention dressing or bandage carefully and lift the dressing away from the wound.
