TrachAlarm™

Innovations Unlimited, LLC of Pennsauken, NJ, is creating the TrachAlarm™ to alert pediatric caregivers in a home care or other non-hospital setting if a patient’s tracheostomy tube becomes dislodged. Tracheostomy tubes allow patients to breathe while undergoing treatment for certain chronic and congenital diseases. Fast recognition of tracheal dislodgement reduces risk for complications such as hypoxia, respiratory failure, cardiac arrest, and death.
