Duration of intubation. Patient repositioning. Suctioning procedures. A lot of factors cause cuff pressure to deviate outside of therapeutic range.(4) Existing solutions for regulating pressure are often inaccurate, unreliable and inefficient.(2,5).
We found a better way.
The IntelliCuff pressure controller continuously measures and maintains set cuff pressure of ET or tracheal tubes. Research shows that automatic regulation of cuff pressure could help lower risk factors for tracheal injuries, microaspiration and VAP.(1,3,5,6,7)
