How to secure the vent tube to the trach

Loop a rubber band to secure it to the trach. This is easier to do before attaching the trach ties.
Attach the trach ties (Dale trach ties with velcro fasteners shown).
If the rubber band is too loose then tie a knot to shorten it.
Cross the rubber bands to secure the tube and prevent "pop-offs".
