Recommendation of a professional on the use of the technology.
The Adjustable Armflex Tracheostomy Cannula with cuff is indicated in patients who require mechanical ventilation due to functional, post-traumatic or surgical alterations that affect the patency of this sector of the airway.
Its purpose is:
– enable mechanical ventilation;
– direct the expiratory airflow towards the larynx to enable phonation;
– allow endoscopic maneuvers (diagnostic and / or therapeutic in the airway);
– facilitate the humidification of secretions and endotracheal aspiration.
The cuff seals the tracheal lumen, allowing adequate control of gas movement during mechanical ventilation and preventing the passage of fluids and secretions from the upper airway into the bronchial tree.
The wall of the cannula is reinforced with a stainless-steel spiral that provides high resistance to kinking and the collapse of its lumen by extrinsic compression.
It has a mobile fixation flange that can be adjusted in the chosen position in relation to the anatomical characteristics of the patient’s neck.
