Cuffed Tracheostomy tube
- The Cuffed tracheostomy tube is a medical device prevent the closure of the orifice of the tracheotomy. It is introduced at an opening in the trachea between the 2nd and 3rd tracheal ring at neck level. This technique is practiced in the obstruction of the airway.
Example: acute obstruction, laryngeal tumors, radiotherapy of larynx
(Edema), bilateral vocal cord paralysis, epiglottitis...
- The balloon cannulas are used in severe problems swallowing and false-roads (but not in children).
- The balloon (a flexible membrane around the base of the cannula), when inflated, the trachea makes tight and reduces false-roads.
- Transparent material and heat sensitive.
- Collar attachment adapted to 3D patient anatomy.
- Radiopaque line for easy positioning control.
- Check Valve for easy inflation and deflation of the balloon.
- Low pressure balloon thin wall PVC.
- Facilitates weaning from mechanical ventilation.
- Facilitates care compared to oropharyngeal intubation.
- Provides freedom of the upper airway.
- Protects the patient against inhalation lung when it is fitted with a balloon.
- Provides a better comfort to the patient.
- Sterile-Sterilized with ethylene oxide.
- For single use only.
a- Transitional :
- Artificial ventilation prolonged .
- Difficulties in weaning (after failure of weaning on endotracheal tube).
- Laryngeal obstruction.
- Impossible intubation.
- Trouble swallowing with breathing.
- Congestion with cough.
b- Definitive :
- Advanced chronic respiratory failure.
- Abnormalities definitive of central or peripheral oropharyngeal junction.
- Degenerative neurological diseases.
- Myopathies advanced.
