Kimberly-Clark* Introduces New KimVent* MICROCUFF* Subglottic Suction Endotracheal Tube
Date:11/18/2013

ROSWELL, Ga., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimberly-Clark today announced the introduction of KimVent* MICROCUFF* Subglottic Suctioning Endotracheal Tube (ETT), the first subglottic suctioning ETT to be FDA cleared for saline use providing for more effectiveclearing of potentially harmful clogs. 1,2,3 The MICROCUFF* Subglottic ETT offers more effective subglottic suctioning and prevention against microaspiration. It also provides more effective prevention against cross-contamination to both patients and healthcare professionals. 1,4

Suction lumens are often clogged by subglottic secretions, preventing effective suctioning and increasing the risk for infectious secretions in the lungs, a leading cause of VAP. 5,6 MICROCUFF* Subglottic ETT features an ergonomic subglottic suction valve and integrated rinse port, enabling controlled rinsing and suctioning of the lumen in a single cycle, without the need to open the suction circuit. 1 This unique feature provides for more effective clearing.1

"Clearing subglottic lines has been a persistent problem causing many of our respiratory therapists to disconnect the line to clear it, resulting in potential secretion exposure to both patient and the respiratory therapist," said Megan Dutch Kelley, Pulmonary Services Education Coordinator at St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. "The KIMBERLY-CLARK* MICROCUFF* Subglottic ETT solves this problem with a more efficient system that enables us to keep a closed system to clear the line, protecting both patient and staff from contamination."

A recent study conducted on behalf of Kimberly-Clark by Clinimark Labs found that using saline to loosen secretions and clear the lumen is both more effective at preventing and clearing clog
