PMVs Under Pressure on a Tracoe Trach
Just wondering if anyone of your kids wear a Tracoe trach and you have had the PMV pop off from being under too much pressure?
I thought that it wouldn't because it's too tight (accessories fit just a hair tighter on a Tracoe) but I switched Ainsley to the Shiley last night and the PMV hasn't popped off that either. So perhaps she's just doing better. But it would be nice to know if it's possible for a PMV to pop of a Tracoe. Then I could switch her back with more peace of mind.
