Cuffed Endotracheal Tube
- Catheter thermosensitive PVC transparent radio-opaque line proximal end with standard connector allows easy connection to any ventilation system .
- It has a low pressure balloon allowing an impervious connection, (which provides information on the state of swelling of the tracheal balloon) the check valve allows inflation of the balloon and pilot balloon the XRO line ensure an easy control of the device position.
- Soft and flexible semi transparent probe.
- Low pressure balloon ensuring low pressure sealing and reduces the risk of micro-inhalation.
- Pilot balloon with a check valve.
- Radiopaque line for optimal control of device position.
- Standard connector for easy connection to the ventilation system.
- The rounded tip of the probe allows atraumatic intubation and brings comfort and patient safety.
- Suitable for intubation by the oral and nasal way.
- Latex free
- Sterile-Sterilized with ethylene oxide.
- For single use only.
A-Maintenance airway permeability :
- The airways are the entry point to the bronchi of the airflow to and from the lungs.Their freedom is essential to survival because the oxygen reserves of the body (approximately, the air in the lungs) does allow a few minutes of battery before death.
- The obstruction of upper airway may be due to:
- foreign body.
- to fall behind the tongue against the pharyngeal wall in a coma or general anesthesia.
- accumulation of fluids, blood, secretions.
B-The airway protection :
- Even if their permeability could be achieved by other methods, the likelihood of passage of gastric contents or other fluids (blood and secretions) in the trachea may remain in comas or some surgery.
- These inhalations induce pneumonia and are particularly serious known as Mendelson's syndrome.
- Tracheal intubation can then isolate tightly the airway tree bronchial balloon through the catheter.
C-The substitution of an inadequate respiratory mecanism :
- Inadequate breathing may be of a mechanical malfunction with the "bellows" composed of the rib cage, diaphragm and respiratory muscles. In this case, tracheal intubation can assist breathing through an inflating bag or a respirator.
D-The substitution of an inadequate lung function :
- In some diseases respiratory syndrome (respiratory distress, edema lung, drowning) the ability of the lung to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide appears insufficient. It is then necessary to increase the volume or pressure of gas inhaled or alter the composition (increased fraction of inspired oxygen,
addition of nitric oxide).
E-General anesthesia :
Tracheal intubation is frequently performed during general anesthesia.
