5 units, sterile, individually packaged. The TRACOE smart Cuff Manager monitors and regulates the internal pressure of High Volume Low Pressure cuffs of tracheostomy tubes as well as endotracheal tubes. The pressure is continuously held between 20 cm H2O and 30 cm H2O.   Visual verification of the correct cuff pressure is indicated by the inflation level of the blue buffer ballon of the TRACOE smart, which should be inflated between 2/3 and 3/4. Additional checks of the cuff pressure may be performed with a cuff pressure manometer (e.g. TRACOE cpm REF 720) at all times. Is the cuff pressure too low, the TRACOE smart Cuff Manager refills the cuff quickly to its recommended pressure. Short high pressure peaks e.g. due to coughing will be tolerated by the integrated damping function which inhibits that air escapes instantly from the cuff. The solid shell of the TRACOE smart protects the highly elastic blue balloon from unwanted compression.  The TRACOE smart Cuff Manager is easy to use and almost self-explanatory. It only takes one product training for even unspecialized nursing staff to use the TRACOE smart without problems.  TRACOE smart is a latex-free, single patient product with a usage time of 29 days after opening.

CUFF PRESSURE MANAGEMENT  TRACOE technic refers to medical devices, which allow setting and control of pressure in low pressure cuffs of tracheostomy and endotracheal tubes with high precision.  CONSTANT PRESSURE  Why is it so important for the cuff to be properly inflated?   For one, to ensure sufficient ventilation at all times. For another, to prevent silent aspiration, which under certain circumstances can lead to a nosocomial ventilation pneumonia. It also prevents damage to the trachea (mucosal necrosis, destruction of cartilage, tracheomalacia).  TWO SYSTEMS, ONE GOAL  TRACOE technic includes two ways to regularly check the cuff pressure. First, the TRACOE cpm handheld manometer, featuring a large, easy-to-read scale (0-100 cm H2O) for quick and easy measurements. The usual pressure range for the application is coloured green.  Secondly, the TRACOE smart Cuff Manager which maintains the inner pressure of low pressure cuffs of tracheostomy tubes as well as endotracheal tubes at 20 cm H2O to 30 cm H2O. The easy use and the visual verification of the correct cuff pressure assists nursing staff in hospitals as well as in home care.
