For Patients & Caregivers
Tracheostomy patients who are ventilator-dependent aren’t limited to intensive care units. Patients who have transferred home face many of the same challenges and risks associated with ventilation. “Closed Suction is accepted as the Standard of Care for ventilated patients.” (Van Hooser, 2002)
Home Care Ventilated Patients
From hospital to home, patients at home who breathe with assistance of a ventilator will face many of the same challenges at home as they did in the ICU, including tracheostomy care and suctioning. That’s why it's important to continue the essential clinical benefits that closed suction catheter systems are proven to provide over open catheters.

These systems are accompanied by these simple, easy-to-use educational and training tools, allowing you the ability to provide your loved ones a highlevel of safe and quality care, long after they’ve come home.
