Shiley™ tracheostomy tubes are intended for use in providing tracheal access for airway management. The primary user is the caregiver in a clinical environment, such as the critical care units of a hospital, non-critical care units of a hospital, long term care facilities, and home care. Patients in the home care environment should be carefully instructed by a home health care provider in the proper use and handling of the tracheostomy tube and accessory products. The tracheostomy tube and obturator are sterile, single patient-use medical devices not intended to be reprocessed (cleaned, disinfected/sterilized) and used on another patient. Duration of use should not exceed twenty-nine (29) days. Please refer to the product instructions for use (IFU) for detailed usage and troubleshooting instructions.
