Any prepared tubes not used within 48 hours must be tossed, which is money down the drain — a waste of inventory and more medical waste.
Our solution: only open what you need, when you need it. With a prepared Shiley™ oral/ nasal endotracheal tube with TaperGuard™ cuff and stylet, clinicians have the tools they need in one sterile, easy-to-access pack — no preloading necessary.
In addition, the Shiley™ oral/nasal endotracheal tube with TaperGuard™ cuff features a low-pressure cuff that exerts 29% less pressure([FOOTNOTE=Lichtenthal PR, Wood L, Wong A, Borg U.
