Most clinicians caring for intubated
patients have experienced clogged
endotracheal tubes regardless of
intubation duration, frequency of
suctioning or type of ventilator system
Data shows that ALL endotracheal tubes
have secretion accumulation and biofilm
growth(1,2, 4) which can increase
resistance by 50% or more (2,3).
endOclear® is a revolutionary device
that could change the standard of care
for patients on the ventilator.
See how endOclear® compares to
Closed Suction and visit our Publications
page for more information on what
cleaner endotracheal tubes could mean
for your patients.
