Endotracheal Tube with TaperGuard Cuff, 7.5 ID x 11.2 mm OD, 25.4 mm Length, PVC, Curved Tip, Sterile, Latex-Free, Murphy Eye, An Itegrated Cuff Inflation Line
The need to reduce ventilator associated events is the primary reason the Shiley Evac oral endotracheal tube with TaperGuard cuff is critical for all patients on a ventilator in the ICU. Subglottic secretion drainage (SSD) helps remove oral and/or gastric secretions from above the endotracheal tube cuff before they can be aspirated. Such aspirations may lead to a very serious complication known as VAP or ventilator associated pneumonia. SSD must be done with a specialized endotracheal tube with a separate dorsal suction lumen located just above the cuff.
