2007 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]
  • The tracheostomy tubes in use are exposed not only to bacteria but also the lining fluids, which are a first defence against toxicity in inhaled gases. It contains several antioxidants. The complex bacteriological environment in the trachea, as well as the formation of a biofilm on the tube surface through colonization of bacteria, is believed to affect the mechanical and chemical properties of the tube material. The study was conducted at the National Respiratory Centre (NRC) at Danderyd Hospital in collaboration with the Royal Institute of Technology and Sophiahemmet University College in Stockholm, Sweden.
