--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Protective collar allows tracheostomy patients to shower. Collar prevents water from entering tracheostomy and blocking air passage. Pattern for collar is drawn from Sansplint XR, a rigid, moldable splinting material resistant to shrinkage. Two measurements are required: 1) from just above the arch of the cricoid notch, and 2) the circumference of the neck from the outer edges of each ear. Collar is molded onto patient's neck. A trough is formed along lower edge of the collar to allow water to drain away from the tracheostomy. The upper edge of the collar is lined with a strip of adhesive foam for comfort and to absorb water that may seep under collar. A strap of 3/4 inch cotton webbing is fitted around circumference of collar and neck allowing for D ring attachment and velcro fastener at the back. Includes photographs and diagram. SKILLS REQUIRED: Sewing. Plastics.
