Name: Tracheotomy set
Manufacturer: Durroch, Wright and Co.
Description: 6.5“x 4“x 1.5” leatherette case.Two ivory handled introducers by Durroch. Tracheotomy dilator by Wright. Two silver tracheotomy tubes, apparently replacements, do not fit introducers, which seem original as does the trachea dilator. Although not completely original this is a nice example of a simple early approach to Tracheostomy. The tracheostomy tubes would have been almost identical except for a small difference in the lumen.
