Pediatric Endotracheal Tube Features Micro-Thin Cuff

The Kimberly-Clark Microcuff Pediatric Endotracheal Tube, an airway management solution designed to meet the unique needs of children, features a micro-thin cuff that effectively seals the airway at ultra-low cuff pressures to reduce the risk of airway trauma.

Anatomically based marks assist in optimal tube placement, and the tube’s design makes it possible to more safely position the cuff lower in the trachea to minimize cuff pressure on the delicate upper airway tissues of pediatric patients.
