The patented Montgomery® Tracheal Cannula System is designed to give the surgeon a complete programme for creating a secondary airway — from initial incision through long-term tracheostomy care. Used in place of tracheostomy tubes, the system provides long-term access to the tracheal airway in situations that require an artificial airway or where access is needed for pulmonary hygiene.
The uniquely designed thin inner flange of the cannula is shaped to fit snugly against the contour of the inner anterior tracheal wall. No tube projects into the tracheal lumen. All tracheal cannulas are made of flexible implant grade silicone to assure patient comfort and safety while reducing complications.
The Montgomery® Long-Term Cannula, used to replace either the Short-Term Cannula or a standard tracheostomy tube, is designed with a highly polished shaft — an exclusive feature that encourages the growth of epithelium to create a smooth stoma. Cannula diameters correspond to standard tracheostomy tube sizes. The stoma length in millimeters is measured along the inferior aspect of the stoma to determine the cannula model.
