The SENSOTRACH® ALU compress is made of non-woven fabric in the size of 3"x4". This light tracheal compress absorbs tracheal secretions and acts as a cushion between the skin and neck flange. The silver-grey satin side of the tracheal compress consists of a non-woven viscose fabric, with finely aluminum coated fibers. This smooth surface is indifferent to secretions and does not stick to the skin.
The tracheostomy tube is pushed through the opening in the tracheal compress, with the aluminum coated side on the skin. The compress is intended for single use only and should, for reasons of hygiene, be changed as soon as it is saturated, and after every cannula change.
