Figure 1: (a) The commonly available T-piece (1) and corrugated tubing (2) is normally connected to tracheostomy tube (3). A swivel connector (5) is interposed between the free end of T-piece and nebulizer (4). When it is decided to run the nebulizer on oxygen, oxygen tubing (6) is directly connected to nebulizer. (b) Alternatively, if the nebulizer is run on air provided by its electric motor, oxygen tubing (6) is connected to third (capped) end of swivel connector through an appropriate universal connector (7) after removing the cap (8). (c) This assembly can be easily applied on spontaneously breathing tracheostomized patients
