Remove secretion from mechanically ventilated patients with the push of a button
Secretion removal simplified and at a fraction of time compared to todays procedure
With the push of a button, TrachFlush deflates the ETT or TT cuff in alignment with the ventilator inspiratory pressure in the lungs. The pressure then pushes (flushes) secretion from below the cuff to above the cuff. Following, the cuff is inflated again. All done in less than 60 seconds.
TrachFlush makes the secretion removal procedure simpler, easier to perform for the ICU staff, more comfortable for the patient as it mimics a normal cough, and takes a fraction of time compared to todays procedure.
Also, as an additional benefit, TrachFlush will - in between secretion removal - automatically maintain the user set cuff pressure, blocking subglottic secretions from entering the lungs, and prevent VAP(1).
