The ASSKEA procuff® S stands out due to its technical innovations and virtually vibration-free smooth operation.
The ASSKEA procuff® S has been specifically designed for the in-patient and mobile care.
The ASSKEA procuff® S meets the special requirements of subglottic aspiration in in-patient environments. With adjustable negative pressure and freely selectable running and pause times, the ASSKEA procuff® S can be set to meet the individual circumstances of the patient.
Using the ASSKEA procuff® S enables secretions to be removed effectively and safely 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® S minimizes impact of the secretion on the cannula cuff. A disposable secretion canister system (1,000 ml) with integrated solidifier is used to absorb secretions.
ASSKEA procuff® S for optimal secretion management:
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.
Secretion flow blocked, secretion canister full.
