Bivona® Tracheostomy Tubes


Please see below for some common question and answers related to our Bivona®  Tracheostomy Tubes.


1)  What do I need to do if I vomit?

If you need to vomit, turn your head away from the tracheostomy stoma so that the vomit will not go down the opening. Using the bulb syringe or suction catheter is recommended.

2)  What should be considered when taking a bath or shower?

There are a few concerns to keep in mind when bathing. These precautions are meant to shield the tracheostomy area from water.

If water should accidentally be splashed into the tracheostomy tube or the trachea, suction the tracheostomy tube right away. If you have an adjustable showerhead, adjust it to hit their body well below the neck area. 

Protective shower shields are available from your homecare company.
