Procedure Kit/Trays, Tracheostomy Care

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed for cleaning around the incision of the trachea, as well as for replacing the inner cannula of the tracheostomy tube (i.e., tracheostomy care). Items in these kits usually include a basin, vinyl gloves, pre-sewn tracheal dressing, drapes, gauze sponges, a cleaning brush, cotton-tipped applicators, pipe cleaners drape, twill tape, plastic forceps, and paper wrap. The kits may be supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Tracheostomy care procedure kits and trays are intended for cleaning and maintaining the patency of the airway and to prevent infection and/or breakdown of the skin surrounding the site.
