SACETT® Suction Above Cuff Endotracheal Tube
Reduce the risk of Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) with suction above the cuff
The Portex® Suction Above the Cuff Endotracheal Tube (SACETT®) is part of the Blue Line® range of Endotracheal tubes. It has been specifically designed to reduce VAP. The SACETT® combines the quality features of the Blue Line® range with the ability to remove secretions from above the cuff while leaving the tube in position.
Portex® Suction Above the Cuff Endotracheal Tubes (SACETT®) are intended to maintain patency of a patient’s airway and prevent aspiration:
- The integral suction lumen to enable removal of secretions is integrated into tube wall to reduce the risk of trauma, and reduce the risk of infection that can be associated with manual catheter suctioning.
- High volume, low pressure Soft Seal® cuff allows an effective seal to be created whilst reducing the risk of tracheal stenosis achieved by the tapered shape allowing for dynamic movement during the breathing cycle.
- Colour coded suction line allows for easy identification.
