- Thread the "hook" tape through one slot of the tracheostomy tube and attach the "hook" fastener to the fuzzy side of the neck pad or strap. Slot should be at least 3/8" (1 cm) to allow for easy insertion.
- Bring the foam neck collar behind the patient's neck and thread "hook" tape through other slot in the tracheostomy tube. Secure "hook" fastener to fuzzy side of neck strap or neck collar.
- Crisscross the white Secure Ties underneath the patient's connector (swivel/ adapter) or flex hose that attaches to the trach tube.
- Grasping each end of the Secure Tie, bring over the top of the patient connector (swivel adapter/elbow) or flex hose. The Secure Tie may be tied at this point in a single tie or a bow tie around the patient connector as illustrated.
