Buchanan is better! ®

Buchanan Protectors are now clinically proven to be better than other stoma covers ®

Take a look at these plus points, and look forward to better comfort and protection! Buchanan Protectors deliver unique benefits to neck breathers through effective product design and material composition - the crucial benefits delivered by the exclusive Hydrolox 1 Foam.

®

The Buchanan Protector is more than just a neckworn cover. It is a serious medical device designed to improve heat, moisture, and filtration for your breathing needs.

The Buchanan Protector offers all these benefits: Carefully selected materials such as pure cotton mesh and the special Hydrolox Foam to provide… • Comfort • Soft and absorbent • Flexible, non-adhesive • Rests comfortably on surface of chest.

Benefits of the exclusive Hydrolox 1 Foam: ✓ Excellent moisture absorbing capacity ✓ Provides heat and moisture to incoming air ✓ Filters out dust and dirt ✓ Exclusive to Kapitex Healthcare

CLINIC ALLY PROVEN BENEFITS Cardiff University Hospital have carried out laboratory tests in accordance with ISO 9360, comparing Buchanan Protectors with a competitor’s stoma cover. As a result of the combination of materials, the Buchanan Protector with Hydrolox Foam out-performed the normal stoma cover considerably! Moisture Output The Buchanan Protector was found to provide 33% more moisture exchange than ordinary covers. This is a considerable difference in performance.

THE ONLY PROTECTORS with

• Buchanan Protectors will therefore be far better in carrying out this function. This highlights the importance of moisture entering the airway to help reduce mucus getting too thick and causing discomfort in the trachea.

HYDROLOX® 1 FOAM

with no sharp edges

✓ Non adhesive, so no skin irritation

✓ Can be used immediately, post operatively ✓ Ideal in all weather conditions ✓ Choice of sizes - small and large ✓ Can be worn day and night ✓ Can be washed up to 3 times

Hydrolox 1 Foam is exclusively incorporated into our Buchanan family of stoma protectors and filters. Together they deliver a better quality of life for the neckbreather.

Hydrolox 1 Foam Moisture retained within the foam Exhaled air

Inhaled air now with added moisture

The Buchanan Protector which is used and worn throughout the world will help filter out:

• Dust, Dirt, Sand, pollen and other particulate matter. It is a serious airway protector. Normal covers and clothing may look attractive, but they are not medical devices, and cannot perform the way Buchanan Protectors do… to give the wearer confidence and safety.

Buchanan Protectors are available on NHS Prescription - see details on back page

You owe it to yourself to protect your airway - choose Buchanan, THE dedicated airway protector

Filtered air Cold,dust and unfiltered air

The Hydrolox Foam works in the following way: as one breathes out (exhales) moisture is trapped in the foam, when one comes to inhale air passes through the foam, taking moisture into the tracheostoma/trachea. This constant repetition ensures moisture levels far above that provided by ‘normal’ plain foam, and of course, is far superior to those not using any protection over their tracheostoma.

The fine cell composition provides an effective mesh to help reduce dust, dirt, pollen and other particles entering the airway.

Hydrolox 1 is a consistent feature in the our range of tracheostomy protectors because of its excellent moisture absorbing capacity

Dust and dirt trapped in the foam

The Buchanan Protector features Hydrolox Foam, due to this foams construction it has excellent filtration properties.

To help create a safer tracheal airway Kapitex have formulated a special hydrophilic foam – Hydrolox 1 Foam. This foam has a very high moisture absorbency capacity.

Using Products with Hydrolox 1 Foam (Buchanan and Laryngofoam) with its special characteristics will provide you with the real protection you need.

How does Hydrolox work?

Patients wear our filters and protectors in many countries throughout the world. In all climatic conditions our stoma protectors and filters – with Hydrolox 1 Foam - deliver important benefits.

Patients will benefit because:

Moisture Retention/output (gm-3)

Buchanan design features:

The function of the nose is to warm, moisten and filter incoming air. However, with tracheostomy and laryngectomy patients this function is taken away. It is very important to maintain a healthy respiratory function in order to avoid discomfort caused by coughing etc. You may be using cheaper ‘ordinary’ foam filters now, but you and your airway may be paying a higher price.

How do we know?

• Moisture is vital to ensure the trachea is kept in good condition.

Pure cotton mesh sandwiching the exclusive Hydrolox 1 Foam.

Buchanans are the only airway protector with Hydrolox© 1 Foam - essential protection, filtration and humidification for neckbreathers.

• Makes it much easier for those who have difficulty tying straps behind the neck • Allows patients to team the DeltaNex Cravat with the protector to provide a fashionable cover • Patients have a choice of many cravat colours and patterns (see overleaf).

The moisture levels provided by Hydrolox keeps the trachea ‘lubricated’ and helps prevent the tracheal mucosa from drying out. Therefore Hydrolox reduces the risk of crusting, excessive mucus and coughing.
