An endotracheal tube is a flexible plastic tube that is inserted into the trachea through the mouth or nose to aid a patient's respires. It ensures the airway and maintains the gas exchange into the lungs. The endotracheal tube is also connected to a ventilator, which delivers oxygen to the lungs.
ENDOTRACHEAL TUBE (MAIS ENDOTRACHEAL TUBE)
ET tube Plain is generally used in neonatal as it decreases the risk of trauma like erosion, infection cricoid perichondritis, and ultimately subglottic stenosis.Technical Features:
Made from non-toxic silicone and medical-grade PVC.
Medical grade cuffed tube with a pilot balloon connected to the tube for secure positioning inside the trachea.
The Extra sleek & non-adherent from inside/outside surface for ease in intubation, extubation, and suctioning.
Murphy's eye ensures trauma free intubation and extubation.
Kink resistant, thin-walled, thermo-sensitive tube.
Softens at body temperature.
Radio opaque line and markings provided to assess the identification of tube position.
At proximal end, standard 15 mm connecter for the attachment to the intensive care unit.
ENDOTRACHEAL TUBE CUFFED
ET tube Cuffed has inflated cuff which seals the airway against oropharyngeal contents & prevents air leakage during positive pressure ventilation. It is preferable in cases like high risk of aspiration, accurate ETCO 2 monitoring & low lung compliance.Technical Features:
Thermo sensitive tube softens at body temperature to confirm to the anatomy of the respiratory tract.
5.0 mm to 10.0 mm Bore with 0.5 mm Stage.
Plain and Cuffed Endotracheal tube
Size available Endotracheal tube (plain): 2.0 mm-5.0 mm bore with 0.5mm stage
Size available Endotracheal tube (cuffed): 5.0 mm-10.0 mm bore with 0.5mm stage
