Kendall Shiley Flexible Tracheostomy Tube Features

Help enable easier insertion and removal
  • Low profile cuff - A thinner, less bulky cuff reduces insertion force by 39%.
  • Beveled tip - A beveled tip on all product configurations eases percutaneous insertion.

May enhance patient fit and comfort
  • Flexible cannula - The outer cannula is flexible enough to conform to the patients airway, but rigid enough to maintain airway patency.
  • Familiar sizes - The tubes use sizing (I.D., O.D., length and tube curvature) that is substantially equivalent to those used in earlier Shiley products. 
  • Size choices €” Additional sizes have been added to improve patient fit when needed.
Help improve clinicians ability to provide mechanical ventilation
  • Taper-shaped-cuff - The ability to titrate ventilator air leak is 65% greater with the addition of TaperGuard cuff technology.
  • Integrated connector - The 15mm connector on the Shiley flexible tracheostomy tubes is now integrated into the outer cannula, which enables ventilation with or without an inner cannula.
