Overview

Reduces ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) by an average of 50%([FOOTNOTE=Mallinckrodt™ TaperGuard™ Evac endotracheal tube 510(k)#090352 benchtop testing.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

The need to reduce ventilator associated events is the primary reason the Shiley™ evac oral endotracheal tube with TaperGuard™ cuff is critical for all patients on a ventilator in the ICU.

Advanced airway protection

Subglottic secretion drainage (SSD) helps remove oral and/or gastric secretions from above the endotracheal tube cuff before they can be aspirated. Such aspirations may lead to a very serious complication known as VAP or Ventilator Associated Pneumonia.

SSD must be done with a specialized endotracheal tube with a separate dorsal suction lumen located just above the cuff. Based upon clinical evidence, the following organizations recommend the use of SSD to reduce the incidence of VAP:

  • SHEA Guidelines
  • American Thoracic Society/ Infectious Diseases Society of America (ATS/IDSA) – Level I
  • Centers for Disease Control (CDC) – Category II
  • American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN)
  • Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)

The Shiley™ Evac endotracheal tube with TaperGuard™ cuff incorporates Shiley™ Evac technology.
