Procedure Kit/Trays, Tracheostomy

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed to keep a temporary or permanent opening in the trachea by inserting a tube after an incision is made through the neck (i.e., after a tracheostomy procedure). Items in these kits usually include a flexible PCV tube with inner cannula, dilators, an obturator/dilator, stick sponge applicators, gauze sponges, fenestrated drapes with tabs, povidone-iodine, needles, scalpel, plastic syringes, and lidocaine. The kits may also include a tracheal tube holder, a swivel adapter, and introducer needle, a tip guide wire, and a guiding catheter. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Tracheostomy procedure kits and trays are intended for placing a tube through the opening in the trachea to provide an artificial airway and/or to remove secretions from the lungs. They are used mainly in operating and emergency rooms.
