Marpac’s Foley Catheter leg band is outstanding.
It’s the best Foley catheter leg band out there.

Just wanted to send you a note about the Marpac ET Tube Holders. I polled my staff on these ET Tube Holders and some of the responses I got were: excellent ETT holder that maneuvers easily to the different positions as required to prevent skin break down on the mouth, no tape is exposed to the patient’s skin, easy to apply. The most important aspect of this tube holder is that since we have been using the Marpac we have not had a self-extubation.

I was excited to hear all this positive feedback about the Marpac ET Tube Holder from my staff and I thought you might like to hear some positive feedback as well.

Marpac Track #320 is the best ET tube holder to prevent skin breakdown.

I just wanted to say how very appreciative I am for this list-serve. As always when you need help and support, you guys always come through. Special thanks to Mike Nibert and John Cornell for their advice. I was able to speak with the company Marpac who has been working with me over the past week to custom make trach ties for my patient. They have simply been amazing! I have been told they will be at Congress and I for one can only say great things about their customer service. Thanks again to you all.

Thank you so much for all of your help yesterday. Seldom do I receive the kind of customer service that you and the rest of the staff @ Marpac deliver. The collars arrived as promised this morning and I have Marpac up in our accounts payable system. Thanks again and have a great weekend.

First let me tell you how much we love your trach ties. We have been foster parents for medical need children for the past 21 years and have had several children with trachs. We have tried several different brand and LOVE yours. They last, don’t fall apart, and always stay together, stopping any accidental decanulations.

We currently have two young boys with trachs. Both are trached for life. We purchase our supplies from Apria out of Indianapolis, Indiana using Medicaid for insurance. We are having a terrible time getting our order for your trach ties filled. At the present time, as it is several times a year, the boys are using at least 2 trach ties a day. They have suffered from pneumonia and bronchitis several times this year and with the mucus that they discharge, it is hard to keep up with keeping their trach ties clean and dry. Apria is only shipping us 30 trach ties a month for the boys and it just isn’t enough. In the past couple months, Apria has not even shipped the 30 ties for them, we are lucky to get 10 for the boys.

Is there any way that your company could assist us with additional trach ties? They both wear: Marpac Tracheostomy collar – adult 204D.

Thank you in advance for taking the time hear our request. It is greatly appreciated and we look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

I have used Marpac trach ties now for eight years. We have two children who have the same syndrome that necessitates a trach until their jaw is reconstructed. As an RN and a special needs parent of two children, I can’t say enough good about Marpac trach ties. They are a neutral color, they don’t leave any dye residue on my children’s sensitive skin, there are no rough pieces of fabric rubbing on their necks, and it is very simple and easy to get the ties to fit my little one’s neck without a lot of “whittling” away at the tie. You only have to make one cut for length, and it is perfect! I love the material that the Marpac’s are made from…..very soft, very comfortable, flexible and easy to thread through the trach “wings”. My children do not have breakdown on their necks while using Marpac trach ties!

I can’t imagine not having this particular trach tie in taking care of my precious children. They have made having a trach so much easier!!!

We have replaced our hospital tape and manufactured ET tube holder with the Marpac “304” ET Tape about 2 years ago. Marpac’s ET Tapes are so much easier to use, save us time and we like the single use packaging. We always receive our Marpac ET Tube Holders very quickly as they are always available to ship the same day.

As a long time user of your trach collars, The Barlow Respiratory community wanted to let you know how much success we’ve had using your vent circuit antidisconnect (The HUB). It’s easy to apply and gives us the assurance we need to prevent accidental disconnects.

Much thanks for, not only, making a great product, but also, providing the excellent customer service we’ve come to enjoy over the years. We can always count on Marpac.

First of all, I want to thank you for thinking of us here at Kingman Regional Medical Center. I know we are not a major medical center but we still have critically ill patients that deserve the best care and equipment out there.

We are using the products and the staff all like the products. I have instructed our inventory personnel to start the process of switching.

Just a quick note to let you know, it’s been almost four years since we’ve been using your ET Tube Holder, and my respiratory staff here at Maguires Veteran’s Medical Center absolutely love your ET Tube Holders. Not only are they user friendly, as they pre-cut and measured to the perfect length, but also, are skin friendly and hold the tube tightly in place. Moreover, whenever we have visiting staff at the hospital, they, almost always ask us where we get our ET Securements from and I always refer them to Marpac.
