An endotracheal tube is a medical device used to establish and maintain an airway in patients who are unable to breathe on their own or require mechanical ventilation. This flexible tube is inserted through the mouth or nose, down the throat, and into the trachea to deliver oxygen and/or anesthesia to the lungs.
The single use endotracheal tube(referred to as " endotracheal tube"), mainly for patients require long term or repeated anesthesia, artificial ventilation and assisted breathing. The product is made of PVC material, which is more excellent in resistance of flexural than standard endotracheal tube in the clinical application. It is more soft in contact with the patients’ mucosal, which can be effective in reducing damage and suffering caused to patients in multiple intubation. It can be used for seven days under normal care, the use method is the same with standard endotracheal tube. Due to the wall of endotracheal tube is embedded stainless steel spring, the flexural and flat deflated ability has been greatly improved, thereby eliminating the risk of suffocation due to the tube kinking and keep the airway unobstructed and earn more time for first aid.
The endotracheal tube is mainly used for clinical insertion into the trachea through the oral or nasal cavity, establishing a breathing passage.
