CuffSentry™ is the first and only device that continuously monitors and maintains desired endotracheal tube cuff pressure without the need for manual intervention. Patients requiring life support are typically cared for with an artificial airway that incorporates an air-filled cuff. Maintaining an endotracheal cuff pressure greater than 20cmH2O is a Level II American Thoracic Society, Infectious Diseases Society of America and CDC recommended Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) prevention strategy. Underinflation or overinflation is associated with complications ranging from migration of subglottic secretions to tracheal wall damage. Since CuffSentry™ maintains constant cuff pressure it can effectively address these complications.
