The Teleflex ISIS HVT is a comprehensive, convertible endotracheal tube that provides optimal airway access and management. With an integrated suction port and a separate line for subglottic secretion suctioning, the Teleflex ISIS HVT meets the needs of patients requiring both short- and long-term ventilation, without the need to change tubes.
When long-term intubation is necessary, a suction line can be attached to the integrated suction port to remove subglottic secretions, which can accumulate above the endotracheal tube cuff. Drainage of these secretions has been demonstrated to be an effective strategy in reducing early-onset ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). The Teleflex ISIS HVT allows clinicians to remove subglottic secretions without changing their current intubation procedures.
