The use of tracheostomy tubes can present many treatment challenges, notably the risk of medical device–related pressure injuries (MDRPIs). These injuries occur in approximately 10% of patients with tracheostomy tubes, and tracheostomies have become more common since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

This white paper, sponsored by Urgo Medical, describes MDRPI pathophysiology and epidemiology, discusses challenges specifically related to tracheostomy tube use, and introduces a new hydroconductive product, Drawtex dressing, for improved moisture management in these patients. Illustrated case reports of Drawtex dressing use are also provided.

Wound care professionals will find this white paper to be helpful in MDRPI prevention in patients with tracheostomy tubes.

This white paper contains information on the following topics:

MDRPI pathophysiology and epidemiology
Tracheostomy treatment challenges
MDRPI prevention in patients with tracheostomy tubes
Drawtex dressing hydroconductive technology
Care reports of Drawtex dressing use
Advantages of Drawtex dressing in COVID-19 patients
