Analogue Cuff Pressure Gauges for tracheal tubes and supraglottic airway devices

Cuff Pressure Gauges are used to adjust and control the pressure of tracheal tube cuffs and cuffs of supraglottic airway devices. The ergonomically designed Cuff Pressure Gauges are compact, robust and portable and are characterised by their accuracy and precision. The analogue system is independent from any energy source and therefore no power supply or batteries are required.

——Key Points Cuff Pressure Management

There is convincing evidence that a continuous cuff pressure measurement (e. g. on supraglottic airway devices) leads to a significant reduction of postoperative complications.
