Overview

Same Trusted Brand, More Advanced Design

Shiley™ tracheostomy tubes have a proven 40-year history with over 760 million products used around the world.

These clinician-inspired enhancements include the taper-shaped TaperGuard™ cuff. The TaperGuard™ cuff may help protect the lungs and reduce tracheal impact by reducing fluid leakage by 99% and exerting 18.6% less lateral wall pressure on the trachea.([FOOTNOTE=Internal benchtop testing results. Results reflect the Shiley™ flexible adult tracheostomy tube with TaperGuard™ cuff, disposable inner cannula tubes ability to titrate / control ventilator air leak in comparison to the Shiley™ tracheostomy tube cuffed with disposable inner cannula (DCT). Benchtop test # 10122514.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) In addition, TaperGuard™ cuff technology helps improve a clinician’s ability to provide mechanical ventilation with the ability to titrate ventilator air leak that is 65% greater than with earlier-generation Shiley™ tubes.([FOOTNOTE=Internal bench-top testing results.

Benchtop test # 10122514.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

Shiley™ flexible tubes were designed with larger inner diameters, compared to earlier Shiley™ tracheostomy tubes. Airflow around the outer cannula when the cuff is deflated has increased by an average of 242%.2 It has been found that improved airflow may reduce the work of breathing required to speak and wean from a tracheostomy tube.5

Other enhancements in the new family of Shiley™ flexible tracheostomy tubes include color-coding by size (for disposable inner cannula products only), an expanded range of sizes, a soft material made with a non-DEHP plasticizer, a clear flange and a design that make it possible to ventilate with or without an inner cannula.

Features

Insertion force may be reduced

  • A thinner, less bulky cuff reduces insertion force by 39%.2
  • A beveled tip on all product configurations eases percutaneous insertion.([FOOTNOTE=Servillo, Giuseppe, and P. Pelosi. Percutaneous Tracheostomy in Critically Ill Patients. Springer, p. 106 2015.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • The Shiley™ flexible tracheostomy products use sizing (I.D., O.D., length and tube curvature) that is similar to those used in earlier Shiley™ products.

May improve clinician’s ability to provide mechanical ventilation

  • Integrated 15 mm connector
  • The TaperGuard™ cuff reduces fluid leakage by 99%.

May reduce the risk of irritation and skin breakdown

  • Flange material is a transparent, soft material designed to conform to the patient’s anatomy to help reduce the risk of skin breakdown.
  • Flange openings designed to improve airflow to sensitive skin. It is offset to help reduce contact with the patient’s skin.
  • The TaperGuard™ cuff exerts 18.6%([FOOTNOTE=Maguire S, Haury F, Jew K. An in vitro comparison of tracheostomy tube cuffs. Medical Devices (Auckland, N.Z.) New Zealand, 8, 185-192. April 21, 2015.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) less lateral wall pressure on the trachea.1

Increased airflow over legacy product

  • Airflow around the outer cannula when the cuff is deflated has increased by an average of 242%.1
  • Improved airflow may reduce the work of breathing required to speak and wean from a tracheostomy tube.4,([FOOTNOTE=Mullins JB, Templer JW, Kong J, et al. Airway resistance and work of breathing in tracheostomy tubes. Laryngoscope. 1993;103(12):1367-1372.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
