Overview

Improve Guideline Compliance

The TaperGuard™ endotracheal tube technology offers significantly improved fluid sealing performance compared to other endotracheal tube cuffs.([FOOTNOTE=Batchelder PB. Seal effectiveness of seven endotracheal tube cuff designs: a study using in in vitro model trachea. International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS) annual meeting. March 20-23; Honolulu, Hawaii, 2010. [Abstract] S-233.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Internal testing. Medtronic (previously as Covidien). 2009.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) By reducing the risk of perioperative aspiration caused by inadequately sealing cuffs, the TaperGuard™ endotracheal tube may reduce the risk of Post-Intubation Pulmonary Complications (PIPC) associated with aspiration and microaspiration.

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.
