KAPITEX

Laryngectomy tubes Kapitex are pleased to announce the introduction of our own brand of Laryngectomy Tubes. As you would expect from Kapitex, we offer major features and benefits:

caters for all sizes comfortably!

The Stoma Studs are a simple device to help keep the stoma open. Kapitex Stoma Studs have the right balance between comfort and flexibility, and give the necessary support to the stoma opening. Stoma Studs are produced from radio opaque medical grade silicone. Carefully designed, offering no sharp or rigid edges and comfortable to wear, the rounded, moulded edges ensure that the stud is easily placed into the stoma without discomfort. A hole has been made in the outer flange to allow a thread to be attached and pinned to clothing, to prevent ingestion or loss if expelled through coughing.

• Produced from medical grade silicone. • Soft yet supportive for the stoma and the trachea. • Smooth rounded edges – for extra comfort and safety. • Customising service available (the tubes can be made to specific lengths, up to 60mm in length). • The Kapitex Laryngectomy Tube can be fenestrated for voice prosthesis users. • Comprehensive diameters and lengths available to give you the best choice. • Competitively priced. • Supplied individually wrapped, clean with twill tape. • Autoclavable – single patient use product. • CE marked Tube Length

TRACHEOSTOMY TUBE

Fenestration punch The fenestration punch allows the placing of fenestrations (small holes) into the Trachi-Naze Plus Stoma Studs and Kapitex silicone Laryngectomy Tubes. The purpose of creating fenestrations is to provide an airflow into the voice prosthesis which may be covered by the shaft of the tube. Fenestrations can also be created for other brands of silicone tubes. The sharp cutting edge removes silicone easily and cleanly. Only Healthcare professionals only should use this device and one can choose whether you create a single or multiple holes for better air flow results. Autoclavable at 134ºC to 138˚C for 3-4 minutes (UK) or 121˚C (230˚F) for 40 minutes (USA).

Cleaning kit Kapitex offers a specially formulated cleaning powder which helps to keep tubes clean and fresh.The powder contains phosphate and detergent which lifts off and breaks down mucus. A solution is made up by putting the powder in the spare container and adding water. The tracheostomy tubes are kept in this solution for 30 minutes, then rinsed thoroughly with clean water. Management of tracheostomy tubes becomes easier when using the Cleaning Kit and through regular usage ensures that the tubes remain free of particle build up.
