The ASSKEA procuff® M for optimal secretion management in the subglottic region
The ASSKEA procuff® M stands out due to its technical innovations and virtually vibration-free smooth operation.
Simple and uncomplicated menu navigation, the background color of the display shows the current device status.
Monitoring of secretion flow and 24 hours of effective and reliable aspiration.
The ASSKEA procuff® M in detail
The ASSKEA procuff® M has been specifically designed for the home care sector.
The ASSKEA procuff® M meets the special requirements of subglottic aspiration in mobile and in-patient environments. With adjustable negative pressure and freely selectable running and pause times, the ASSKEA procuff® M can be set to meet the individual circumstances of the patient.
Using the ASSKEA procuff® M enables secretions to be removed effectively from the subglottic region, also called “cuff pool” or “angle of sorrow”. This enables the rate of ventilator-associated pneumonias (VAP) to be significantly reduced and therefore increases quality of life and provides substantial safety in the use of blocked cannulas.
Depending on the incidence of secretion volume, using the ASSKEA procuff® M minimizes impact of the secretion on the cannula cuff. A disposable secretion canister (250 ml) with integrated solidifier is used to absorb secretions.
ASSKEA procuff® M for optimal secretion management:
Atraumatic aspiration Alternating suction and pause intervals prevent mucosa drying and throat irritations.
The pressure equalization after the suction phase preserves the mucosa.
Suction strength depending on the viscosity of the secretion, suction and pause intervals depending on discharge flow.
Alarm function Secretion flow blocked, secretion canister full.
