COVID 19, in severe cases, generates an inflammatory reaction in lung tissue that alters respiratory dynamics and gas exchange at the alveolar level. These patients require mechanical ventilation. This requires respirators and appropriate endotracheal tubes or tracheostomy tubes.The Electroplast subglottic suction endotracheal tube has a channel, with an orifice above the pneumotaponation balloon, which allows that the tracheal secretions that are accumulate in the subglottic space of the patient to be aspirated. This possibility of aspiration during mechanical ventilation is essential for the prevention of pneumonia associated with mechanical ventilation.Find in the following link the presentation of Dr. Edgardo Ramos, Electroplast’s consultant physician, at the expovirtual Germany 2020
