PHS has been working hard to update impacted customers on the Bivona trach tube shortage. This shortage is caused due to limitations in the silicone product used to manufacture the trach tubes. Bivona expects the shortage of pediatric trach tubes to last into mid 2023.

PHS recommends you continue reprocessing per manufacturer instructions and work with your doctor to determine if a different brand or type of trach tube is an option. If a different trach tube is identified, ask your doctor to send new orders to PHS. 

We will continue to support patients in any way we can and work with you based on your current supply and options for different trach tubes. If you have concerns, contact PHS and/or your doctor’s office for support.
