HALYARD* MICROCUFF* Pediatric Endotracheal Tube

A new standard for pediatric airway management

Pediatric MICROCUFF

HALYARD* 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.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 a NEW level of safety

  • 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
