Kimberly-Clark Health Care, Roswell, Ga, offers the KimVent* Microcuff* adult and pediatric endotracheal tubes. The tube features an advanced micro-thin polyurethane cuff that provides a superior tracheal seal proven to achieve superior protection against micro-aspiration. By virtually eliminating the formation of channels typically found in PVC cuffs, KimVent*Microcuff* tubes minimize the leakage of potentially infectious secretions into the lungs.
Also available, KimVent* Microcuff* pediatric endotracheal tubes, designed specifically for the pediatric anatomy, offer the advantages of a cuffed tube, reducing tracheal trauma and providing a sealed airway that allows minimal and low flow anesthesia use. Its short, cylindrical cuff membrane compensates for different sized and shaped pediatric airways, reducing the need for replacing oversized tracheal tubes, and resulting in lower re-intubation rates.
