Seals out doubt

SealGuard™ Basic and SealGuard™ Evac endotracheal tubes offers the same patented TaperGuard™ cuff technology, with an integrated cuff inflation line and integrated suction lumen. The SealGuard™ Evac endotracheal tube features an ultra-thin polyurethane cuff that permits lower cuff pressures to maintain proper tracheal seal.([FOOTNOTE=Lorente L. Influence of an endotracheal tube with polyurethane cuff and subglottic drainage on pneumonia. American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. 2007; 176: 1079-1083.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) It also features a smooth Murphy eye for easy insertion and is suitable for both nasal and oral insertion.

The SealGuard™ Evac tracheal tube has been proven to reduce microaspirations and thus reduce the incidence of VAP.1,([FOOTNOTE=Smulders K, van der Hoeven H,Weers-Pothoff I, Vandenbroucke-Grauls, C.

Chest. 1995; 108(6): 1665-62.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) The tapered shape of the cuff and the polyurethane material used to make the cuff, enables this tube to fit snuggly within the tracheal walls.
