The Kimberly-Clark MICROCUFF Endotracheal Tube is an airway management device designed to reduce the leakage of potentially infectious secretions into the lungs. The tube’s superior sealing capability of the is created by a unique cuff that is made with an advanced micro-thin polyurethane material. While conventional PVC cuffs create folds and channels when inflated which allow fluid to leak past the cuff, the cuff on the MICROCUFF* Endotracheal Tube minimizes those channel openings and creates an effective tracheal seal. The cuff’s length and shape are also designed for better contact with tracheal contours to increase protection against fluid leakage. The tube’s cuff also seals the airway at low pressures, reducing the risk of tracheal trauma in intubated patients.
