Efficient secretion removal
Easy and user-friendly interface
No need for tracheal suctioning catheters
Your new and more efficient secretion removal solution
TrachFlush is an add-on to the installed mechanical ventilation systems in the ICU.
With two functionalities - Flush and Cuff control - TrachFlush ia able to remove secretion from the airways without a suctioning catheter and block subglottic secretion from entering the lungs.
To remove the secretion, TrachFlush creates an artificial cough, utitlizing the ventilator flow and endotracheal cuff, removing secretion more efficiently, comfortable and natural, leaving the patient with a more efficient and safe procedure for removing secretion.
A fully-integrated solution with a lifespan of several years, you can count on TrachFlush to be:
Ready when you are
The TrachFlush device is easy to set up and requires minimum handling, only a push on a button to active the secretion removal procedure. Mount it directly to the ventilator or the patient bed for easy access.
The device and accessories has several years of a life span, minimum handling and only takes 5min to learn or teach new staff how to use.
Use with standard equipment
TrachFlush can be used with endotracheal tubes or tracheostomy tubes and installed mechanical ventilators you find in the ICU today. Simply attach the device and start using.
A Step-By-Step guide on how to use Flush control
The nurse increases the ventilator air-flow pressure
Following, the nurse presses "Flush" on TrachFlush, and the ETT cuff is deflated and the increased air-flow pressure pushes the secretion above the cuff
The secretion is accumulated below the endotracheal tube (ETT) cuff
Following the TrachFlush procedure, the ETT cuff is automatically inflated again, blocking secretion and fluid from entering the trachea.
The secretion pushed above the cuff will then pass through the esophagus onto the stomach.
