How do you put an HME on the trach without feeling like you are going to choke him or such?


Everytime I go to put it on, I can only get it on a little which means the slightest tug and it's off.. So whats your tip/trick?


Thanks in advance.

I gave it a slight twist as i put it on :) kinda like screwing it on. I had to hold the trach while I did the same taking it off as that did make it fit a bit tighter.

Alright.. I will have to give it try as he'll be on the HME for the next two days cause he has appointments in vegas.
