VentiSeal reduces the risk of vocal cord injury and tracheal necrosis through an optimal volume cuff with ideal pressure distribution and effective sealing. The thin ultra-smooth cuff wall reduces abrasive creases and folds, conforms to the tracheal contours and provides an effective seal.
The diagram demonstrates the difference between the surface area that is in contact with the trachea when using a VentiSeal Cuffed Tube (left) and a conventional cuffed tube (right). The cuff shape and length of the VentiSeal Endotracheal Tube enables the pressure to be distributed over a larger surface area, minimising the pressure placed on the tracheal wall and reducing the risk of tracheal wall necrosis.
Ensures tube patency for patient safety, whilst softening at body temperature to conform to the patient’s respiratory tract.
The double line guide facilitates safe and accurate cuff placement below the vocal cords.
In addition to providing a tactile check on cuff inflation, the pilot balloon clearly identifies the tube size.
