Shiley™ Flexible Adult Tracheostomy Tubes with Disposable Inner Cannula (Fenestrated)

Initial Placement

Help Enable Easier Insertion and Removal

  • Low profile cuff—A thinner, less bulky cuff reduces insertion force by 39%.1
  • Beveled tip—A beveled tip on all product configurations eases percutaneous insertion.

May Enhance Patient Fit and Comfort

  • Flexible cannula—The outer cannula is flexible enough to conform to the patient’s airway, but rigid enough to maintain airway patency.
  • Familiar sizes—The tubes use sizing (I.D., O.D., length and tube curvature) that is substantially equivalent to those used in earlier Shiley™ products.
  • Size choices—Additional sizes have been added to improve patient fit when needed.

Mechanical Ventilation

Help Improve Clinician’s Ability to Provide Mechanical Ventilation

  • Taper-shaped-cuff—The ability to titrate ventilator air leak is 65% greater with the addition of TaperGuard™ cuff technology.2
  • Integrated connector—The 15mm connector on the Shiley™ flexible tracheostomy tubes is now integrated into the outer cannula, which enables ventilation with or without an inner cannula.

Skin Care

May Reduce the Risk of Skin Breakdown

  • Flange material—The flange features a transparent, soft material designed to conform to the patient’s clavicle to help reduce the risk of skin breakdown.
  • Flange windows—The central portion of the flange has windows designed to improve airflow to sensitive skin. It is offset to help reduce contact with the patient’s skin.

Trachea, Lung Protection and Weaning

Help Protect the Lungs

  • Taper-shaped-cuff—With the TaperGuard™ cuff, the tube reduces fluid leakage by 99%.3

Help Reduce Impact on the Trachea

  • Wall pressure—The tube exerts 18.6%4 less lateral wall pressure on the trachea.1


Help Reduce the Work of Breathing

  • Increased airflow—Airflow around the outer cannula when the cuff is deflated has increased by an average of 242%.1
  • Work of breathing—Improved airflow may reduce the work of breathing required to speak and wean from a tracheostomy tube.5

Other Features

  • New material—Shiley™ tracheostomy tubes are now manufactured with a citrate-based plasticizer.
  • Reusable inner cannula—May be cleaned and reused up to 29 days for same patient use.
