STOMA > Hood Stoma Stents

  • Hood Stoma Stents
The Hood Stoma Stent* is a self-retaining device used to maintain the patency of a tracheostomy. The Stoma Stents are smooth, flexible, and nonirritating to the skin and the tracheal mucosa.
Principal Indications for Stoma Stent use are:
1. Maintenance of long-term or permanent tracheostomy in:
• Sleep Apnea
• Bilateral vocal cord paralysis
• Laryngeal (glottic) insufficiency or stenosis
2. Short-term tracheostomy when assisted respiration is not required.
3. Following removal of cannula or T-Tube until adequate airway is assured or as an alternative to a T-Tube in appropriate cases.

The Hood Intended Use and Instruction Manual, which is supplied with each product, provides detailed information on insertion technique, sterilization, and postoperative care.
