Provox Silicone Glue helps improve the adhesion between the skin surrounding the tracheostoma and an adhesive baseplate designed to fit over the area. At the same time, the solution improves the barrier’s adhesive properties while reducing skin irritation.
This liquid solution comes in a bottle with a non-sterile brush cap. Each bottle is designed for single-patient use, offering multiple applications.
To apply Provox Silicone Glue:
1. First unscrew the transportation cap, before replacing it with the included brush cap.
2. Close and secure the brush cap.
3. Clean and dry the skin surrounding the stoma.
4. Unscrew the brush cap and remove any excess glue.
5. Add a thin layer of glue to the skin. If it doesn’t appear thick enough, apply a second layer. Hold your breath to prevent inhaling the solvent, and avoid having the glue pass into your tracheostoma.
6. Allow the glue to dry for three to four minutes.
7. Attach a Provox Adhesive barrier plate.
8. Close the cap to reduce evaporation.
To remove, wait for the baseplate to spontaneously detach, or use Provox Adhesive Remover tissues to pull off the plate and remove any residue.
Provox Silicone glue is not designed for use on damaged or hypersensitive skin, and should not be used by patients with a known allergy to its ingredients. If you experience irritation or any other type of discomfort while using the solution, discontinue usage for several days. If the issue persists, it’s recommended that you reach out to your doctor.
