General information

For insertion into the trachea, via mouth or nose, to maintain a clear airway during general anaesthesia or resuscitation.

Recommended sizes: infants numbers 4-5, children 5-7 and adult 7-9


An endotracheal tube with a cuff is a hollow cylinder with a balloon inserted orally or nasally into the trachea to ensure an unobstructed airway through which to convey gases and vapours to and from the lungs during anaesthesia, resuscitation and other situations where the patient is not properly ventilated.

Endotracheal tubes with cuffs are standard in all aspects: dimension, connection and markings.


Tube: Transparent polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyurethane.


Connector: PVC transparent or blue.


Pilot balloon: siliconized latex or siliconized PVC


Tracheal cuff: siliconized PVC or siliconized latex rubber


Endotracheal tube with cuff, pilot balloon and connector.


- Tube: Murphy type, curved.


- Nasal and oral, 37.5° angle.


- Continuous X-ray line.


- Graduated.


- A black position-indicator for correct tube placement, positioned above the pressure cuff.


- Patient end: open bevelled (obliquely cut). 


Tracheal cuff and pilot balloon:


 -  The cuff, situated at the patient end of the tube, provides an airtight seal between the tube and the tracheal wall. It protects the patient’s airway from stomach aspiration. It also allows for effective ventilation during IPPV. 


The cuff has a low pressure in order to avoid inadequate pressure on the tracheal mucous membrane to prevent damage or even necrosis.


The cuff is inflated via a small-bore inflation tube welded to the outside of the tracheal tube or built into its wall.


- Pilot balloon: The inflation tube is connected at the proximal end to a small pilot balloon designed to indicate cuff distension. It includes a device for maintaining a preset pressure in the circuit (plug, shut-off valve and non-return valve) with a Luer tip.


- Connector: straight, double-ended.


Machine end: standard male connector conical, straight, with outer Ø 15mm for connecting a breathing circuit or manual resuscitator.


Patient end: a long plain axis, length and diameter according to tube size to ensure a safe fitting.
