Additional Product Information as Provided by the Manufacturer:
The Lyofoam range of dressings meets all the criteria for the ideal wound dressing and offers solution for wounds with differing levels of exudate, as well as malodorous wounds and wounds requiring fixation with an adhesive border.
Lyofoam T is used as a dressing for tracheostomy, other intubation and cannula insertion procedures and external bone fixators.
Lyofoam T dressing is made from Lyofoam with a special ‘cross cut’ designed to fit closely around the tubes, cannulae or pins used in invasive medical procedures.
The Benefits of Using Lyofoam T
- Hydrophilic wound contact area absorbs exudate and allows fluid to evaporate, avoiding maceration
- Does not allow newly-formed epithelium to penetrate, avoiding wound trauma during dress changes
- Minimizes risk of maceration
- Pre-cut cross to fit closely around tracheostomy, other intubation and cannula sites
- Quick and easy to apply and remove
- Maintains the optimum wound environment for rapid healing
- Provides protection and cushioning over the site of intubation
- Hydrophobic outer layer helps to prevent "strike through" and reduces risk of secondary infection
- Absorbs low to moderate levels of exudate
- Supplied individually packed, sterile and ready for immediate use
- Available in one convenient size, suitable for use on any intubation procedure
How Lyofoam T Works

Areas of Use
Lyofoam T is for use in the treatment of light to moderate wounds associated with tracheostomy, other intubation and cannula insertion sites.
