Anaesthesia- Endotracheal Tube (Plain / cuff)





Endotracheal Tube also known as Laryngeal mask airway or LMA. Endotracheal tube is a breathing tube and comes in plain or cuffed. 

What is an Endotracheal Tube?

  • An Endotracheal Tube is a breathing tube. It is used temporarily for breathing because it keeps your airway open. This curved tube is placed through the patient’s nose or mouth into the trachea or wind pipe. Tape or a soft strap holds the tube in place. 

  • Endotracheal Tube is a flexible plastic tube that is put in the mouth and then down the trachea (the airway). The doctor inserts the tube under direct vision with the help of a Laryngoscope. The procedure is called Endotracheal Intubation. The purpose is to ventilate the lungs.

Why do patients need Endotracheal Tube?
An ETT is used:

  • To attach a ventilator if the patient is unable to breathe on its own
  • To keep the patients windpipe (trachea) open
  • To allow the medical staff to remove mucus from the patient’s lungs that he is unable to cough up himself.

Did you know? The Laryngeal Mask Airway was invented by British Anesthetist, Dr Archie Brain.

Who uses Endotracheal Tubes?
All hospitals – operating rooms, pre-hospital settings (Trauma/Ambulance)

Insertion of Endotracheal Tube

Our Product Features on Endotracheal Tube

  • Used to provide direct and unimpeded airway to and from lungs
  • Made from special Non-toxic, clear, thermo sensitive siliconised PVC material to protect delicate mucosal tissue and allow confirmation of tube placement due to condensation of the expired gases
  • All tubes are fitted with 15 mm standard connector, which insures compatibility with circuit connectors
  • Smooth tip aids atraumatic intubations
  • Full-length radio-opaque line to assess exact location of tube
  • 1 cm graduation markings to ascertain insertion depth
  • 2 cm indicator mark assists positioning of tube past the vocal cord
  • Endotracheal tubes are made of implant-tested PVC (polyvinyl chloride)
  • Latex free

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Endotracheal Tube: The Tracheal Tube made of special thermo sensitive material readily conforming to body curvatures at body temperature. The product is provided with X-ray opaque line on the tube to facilitate easy location of tube and proximal end fitted with leak proof connector. The product is sterilized using EO (Ethylene Oxide) gas. The product is provided in two following types-

  • Endotracheal Tube with cuff: The tube provided with soft cuff based on high volume and low pressure at the distal end, non- return valve with pilot cuff for easy assessment of the pressure in the main cuff and Murphy eye at distal end for atraumatic intubations and extubation.

  • Endotracheal Tube without cuff: The tracheal tube without cuff provided with Nasal / Oral tip suitable for nasal / oral intubations.
  • Endotracheal tube made from the raw material of Poly Vinyl Chloride and Polypropylene. 

INTENDED USE OF PRODUCT: The tracheal tubes are used for performing respiration for patients connected with respiratory system during operation or who loose active breathing ability.

Basic info on Endotrached Tube

An Endotracheal Tube (also called ET tube or ETT) is used in general anaesthesia.
Intensive care and emergency medicine for airway management, mechanical ventilation and as an alternative route for many drugs if an IV Line cannot be established.

A flexible plastic tube that is put in the mouth and then down into the trachea (the airway). The doctor inserts the tube under direct vision with the help of a Laryngoscope.  The procedure is called endotracheal intubation. The purpose is to ventilate the lungs.

Endotracheal Tube flexible plastic tube – placed through the mouth into the trachea (windpipe) to help a patient breathe. The ETT is then connected to a ventilator, which delivers oxygen to the lungs. The process of inserting the tube is called endotracheal intubation.
An ETT may be placed when a patient is unable to breathe on their own, due to a medical emergency, serious illness or during surgery when a general anesthetic is used.  
With general anaesthesia, the muscles of the body including the diaphragm are paralyzed, and placing the endotracheal tube allows the ventilator to do the work of breathing.
Sometimes after lung cancer surgery, an ETT connected to a ventilator is left in place to help with breathing after surgery. In this case, medications are used to ease anxiety until the tube is removed. Since an endotracheal tube passes between the vocal cords, individuals are unable to talk when the tube is in place. Following the surgery, with general anesthetic, some people feel a sore throat for a while from having the ETT in place.

ETT – A catheter that is inserted into the trachea through the mouth or nose in order to maintain an open air passage or to deliver oxygen or to permit the suctioning of mucus or to prevent aspiration at the stomach contents.

“ETT” is a kind of: Catheter (A thin flexible tube inserted into the body to permit introduction or withdrawal of fluids or to keep the passage way open).

Nasotracheal tube – A tube inserted into the trachea through the nose and pharynx, used to deliver oxygen.

Procedure:
It is inserted into the trachea, generally via the mouth, but sometimes through the nose, (eg. in extensive mouth surgery) or even through a tracheostoma. The process of inserting an ETT is called intubation. Intubation usually requires general anaesthesia and muscle relaxation but can be achieved in the awake patients with local anaesthesia or in an emergency without any anaesthesia. It is usually performed by visualizing the laryngoscope but can also be performed “blind”.

TYPES: 
Many types of ETT: Range in sizes from 3-9mm in internal diameter (ID).
Different sizes are chosen based on the patient’s body size and smaller sizes used for pediatric patients. Tubes larger than 6mt (internal diameter – ID) tend to have an inflatable cuff. Special double lumen ETT have been developed for lung and other inter-thoracic surgery. These tubes allow one lung ventilation while the other lung can be collapsed to make surgery easier.
