Marpac 230 and 235 – The Comfort Collar

Now available in the UK for both adult and paediatrics. A special tracheostomy tube holder with built-in cushion for added comfort. Helps to prevent pressure sores potentially caused by tracheostomy tube flanges.

Description

The new Marpac Comfort Collar was designed to help prevent tracheotomy-related pressure wounds, a complex problem in some cases.

Available in both adult (ref: 230) and paediatric (Ref:235) the Marpac Comfort Collars feature:

  • Built-in cushion material that helps protect the neck from direct contact with tracheostomy tube flanges
  • Cushion design suitable for both straight and V-style flanges
  • Easily adjusted for a variety of neck sizes

These collars were recently cited in a clinical study as a possible cost-effective solution, reducing both material and labour costs.
