Shiley™ neonatal and paediatric tracheostomy tubes incorporate a wide range of simple and smart design advances to improve the experience for both patients and clinicians.

Our portfolio offers innovative cuffed and cuffless trach tubes, in a variety of sizes, to protect your patients from complications.

TAILORED TO YOUR PATIENTS’ NEEDS

New Shiley™ neonatal and paediatric trach tubes’ features:
  • Flange distinction for neonatal or paediatric patients;
  • Comfort recess on the bottom of the connector to help reduce inferior stoma irritation1;
  • A unique cuff design;
  • TaperGuard™ cuff technology may reduce removal force1;
  • TaperGuard™ Cuff Technology - To help you manage your ventilatordependent patients
The low-profile, low-pressure TaperGuard™ cuff:
  • Reduces fluid leakage by an average of >94.8% at similar or lower intracuff pressure2
  • Significantly improves management of airway leak at pressure below 25 cm H2O3
  • Reduces removal force by 58.3% compared to the previous barrel-shaped cuf- reducing the potential for stoma irritation or damage during removal4
  • Transparent soft flange that supports patient comfort and visualisation of skin below
