The ET tube is simply a tube of about 21-23cm in length and is made up of Polyvinylchloride (PVC), is placed between the vocal cords through the trachea (windpipe) to provide oxygen and inhaled gases directly to lungs. Its main purpose is to establish and maintain an open airway path to ensure adequate exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide via connecting to a ventilator. It is widely employed in the process of Endotracheal Intubation.
Tracheal intubation, or simply an intubation, is a medical process in which a tube is placed into trachea through nose or mouth to assist in breathing. In severe cases, it is placed through mouth. Basically, it is an emergency procedure that is performed on people who are unconscious or who can’t breathe naturally and subsequently aided in ventilation process during anesthesia, sedation or critical illness.
MAIS India manufactures the Endotracheal tube (Mais ET tube), of size about 2.0 mm-5.0 mm bore with 0.5 mm stage, completely made from non toxic silicon and Medical Grade PVC. It is designed extra sleek with non-adhesive surfaces (both from inside and outside) for the ease in the process of Intubation or Extubation. The additional air vent, also called Murphy’s eye, depicts the trauma free intubation even if the primary opening is occluded in some way and thus eventually ensuring ventilation. It further provides additional benefits of being kink resistant, thin walled and thermo-sensitive tube that softens at a body temperature. Our company has also designed a Cuffed ET tube, of size about 5.0 mm-10.0 mm bore with 0.5 mm stage, which aids in-
- Sealing the trachea so that positive pressure cannot escape from the lower airway
- Sealing the upper airway, so that material above glottis cannot enter the trachea.
It is used in cases like high risk of aspiration, accurate ETCO2 (End Tidal Carbon dioxide) monitoring & low lung compliance. Hence, ET tube acts as a life-saving device, which should be of optimum quality to ensure its appropriate working and to obtain the desired results, MAIS India undergoes all the quality testing of the product and makes it easily accessible internationally at its best prices.
