Abstract

Tracheostomic clyster pipes are mechanisms which allow one to artificially maintain the permeability of the air passageway under those circumstances when it is not possible to breathe by the conventional way. Nowadays, there is a wide variety of clyster pipes available to medical professionals. Each of these has its own traits and precise applications. This article describes those clyster pipes most frequently used in hospitals and outpatient clinics; furthermore, their use, care and therapeutic applications are mentioned.
