Bivona tracheostomy (trach) tubes are currently unavailable from the manufacturer and although they are expected to supply them again in the future, we can no longer provide them for our patients once we use up our stock.
We will keep you updated on the status of re-supply as we learn more. Our most recent update from Smiths Medical was received on March 18, 2019:
In the meantime we want to remind you of the option to clean and reuse any Bivona trach tubes, obturators, and wedges you already have. You can clean and disinfect the trach tube up to five times. Always wash your hands and put on medical gloves when cleaning and disinfecting the trach tube.
Please contact PHS when you run low on your supply of Bivona trach tubes. PHS can work with you and your doctor to delect a similar trach tube from a different manufacturer.
