The tray shown in Figure 1 for bedside use tracheotomized patients has been useful in standardizing and simplifying the care of these patients.

The component stainless steel parts are from standard hospital stock-room supplies, except for the top, which is cut from a flat stainless steel sheet. Holes are cut to fit A, B, and C in Figure 2. The edges of the top are rolled to fit over tray D.
