Shiley™ tracheostomy tubes boast a rich 40-year legacy, with over 760 million units utilized worldwide.

These innovations, inspired by clinicians, encompass the unique TaperGuard™ cuff. This specialized cuff design aims to safeguard the lungs and minimize tracheal impact by significantly reducing fluid leakage by 99% and exerting 18.6% less lateral wall pressure on the trachea. Additionally, the TaperGuard™ cuff technology enhances clinicians’ capability to deliver mechanical ventilation, allowing for a 65% greater ability to titrate ventilator air leak compared to earlier-generation Shiley™ tubes.

Shiley™ flexible tubes feature enlarged inner diameters compared to their predecessors. This enhancement results in a notable increase of approximately 242% in airflow around the outer cannula when the cuff is deflated. Research suggests that enhanced airflow may alleviate the respiratory effort required for speech and facilitate the weaning process from a tracheostomy tube.

The latest family of Shiley™ flexible tracheostomy tubes introduces several advancements, including size-specific color-coding (applicable to disposable inner cannula products), an expanded size range, utilization of a soft material with a non-DEHP plasticizer, a transparent flange, and a versatile design enabling ventilation with or without an inner cannula.

Available size: 7.5mm
