MICROCUFF* Paediatric Endotracheal Tubes

A new standard for paediatric airway management

 

HALYARD* MICROCUFF* Paediatric 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.1 Its short and 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.1

Designed for ideal anatomical cuff placement

  • Advanced microthin polyurethane material (10 microns) permits a true high volume, low pressure (HVLP) cuff, effectively sealing at an average of 11 cm H201, about half the pressure of conventional tubes
  • Anatomically-based intubation depth mark results in correct placement and a cuff-free subglottic zone2
  • Precision bands facilitate and confirm optimal tube placement

Offers the advantages of a cuffed tube with changes in technology

  • Seal with a cuff membrane in the trachea, instead of rigid tube shaft in the cricoids
  • Low rate of re-intubation1, as MICROCUFF* reduces need to replace oversized tracheal tubes,  resulting in less patient trauma, time and material costs
  • Reduced risk of aspiration of blood and secretions due to improved seal
  • Sealing with a cuff compensates for different sized and shaped airways

WE'RE CHANGING...

Due to the sale of the HALYARD brand to Owens & Minor, the manufacturer of Digestive Health, Respiratory Health, and Pain Management Products will be known as Avanos Medical, Inc. During the transition period, these Products will continue to display the HALYARD labeling and sponsor information, but any questions or concerns regarding these products should be directed to Avanos Medical, Inc. or Avanos Medical Australia Pty Ltd, L10, Suite 10.04, 475 Victoria Avenue Chatswood NSW 2067. The toll free number and manufacturing site addresses remain the same. Click here for more information.

The product information for Digestive Health, Respiratory Health, and Pain Management will continue to be available on www.halyardhealth.com.au for the next three months. On 1 July 2019, the information will be removed and transferred to the new website for Avanos Medical Australia at www.avanos.com.au.
