Above and below the cuff secretion removal without the need for tracheal suctioning.
Easy and intuitive feature for tracheal secretion removal below and above the cuff.
With the push of a button, TrachFlush deflates the cuff and utilizes the ventilator air pressure during an inspiratory cycle to "flush" the secretion from below and above the cuff up into the oral cavity. No need to perform tracheal suctioning manually.
