Attachments, including adhesives and laryngectomy tubes, make it possible for you to use a Heat and Moisture Exchanger (HME) in front of your stoma. This is crucial for maintaining optimal lung health and function.
An adhesive is the most common and comfortable way to attach the HME in front of your stoma. Stick the adhesive over the stoma, following the instructions carefully, and attach the HME to it. Sometimes it may be recommended to use a Provox LaryTube or LaryButton, in which case, you shouldn’t use adhesives until you have consulted your clinician.
Changing the adhesive can sometimes be tricky. It’s important to look after the skin around your stoma.
Let Luis take you through 4 simple steps to change adhesives.
Provox Luna is soft and smooth on the skin, and the ring is smaller, which can make it more comfortable for sleeping. We’ve also made it with a special “hydrogel,” which has a soothing, cooling effect. You might notice your skin feels less irritated, which will help when it comes to wearing your daytime adhesive.
Four simple steps to change to Provox Luna. Use Provox Luna to sleep more comfortably, to sooth the skin and to improve the lung health.
Four simple steps to change to Provox OptiDerm. Use Provox OptiDerm to get a gentler seal around your stoma, when your skin feels sore or irritated.
Four simple steps to change to Provox StabiliBase. Use Provox StabiliBase to speak hands-free and to get a strong seal around your stoma.
Four simple steps to change to Provox XtraBase. Use Provox XtraBase to get a stronger seal around your stoma, and to speak hands-free.
It’s easy for the skin around your neck to become irritated if you are not careful when you change your adhesive. You may also struggle from time to time to get a good strong seal. That’s why we have developed the Change Routine Tool (link to page about the tool) to take you through how to REMOVE – CLEAN – PREPARE – APPLY your adhesive on a daily basis.
Our Adhesive Change Routine Tool walks you through the daytime and the nighttime steps to successfully change your adhesive. You can read more about it here.
Sometimes your clinician may recommend using a Provox LaryTube or LaryButton. The Provox LaryTube is a cannula that keeps the Provox HME in front of the stoma, while preventing the stoma from shrinking. It can be used instead of an adhesive directly after surgery, during radiotherapy when it is not possible to use an adhesive, and at times when the skin is irritated. The Provox LaryTube is attached with Provox LaryClips or a Provox TubeHolder. The Provox LaryButton is also used to keep Provox HMEs in front of the stoma, and prevents the stoma from shrinking. It stays in the stoma by itself, or is kept in place with Provox LaryClips or a Provox TubeHolder. The size and shape of your stoma will determine if you can use a LaryButton. The LaryButton should fit comfortably in your stoma without causing any irritation or discomfort – but you should always consult your clinician before using one.
