Shiley™ oral and nasal RAE endotracheal tubes with TaperGuard™ cuff feature a preformed curve design intended to reduce kinks and disconnects, maintain a patent airway, and remove the circuits and connectors from the surgical field.
In addition, the RAE tube features the TaperGuard™ cuff technology: A low-pressure cuff that exerts 29% less pressure([FOOTNOTE=Lichtenthal PR, Wood L, Wong A, Borg U.
