This paper demonstrates the need for a cosmetic device as a necessary adjunct to long-term tracheostomy care. Such devices are not available, at present, from tracheostomy tube manufacturers. The cosmetic tracheostomy cover plate is based on a silver Negus tracheostomy tube, to which the silver chain and cover plate (locket) are attached. The result, for the patient who tried it, was excellent.
