Cuff Pressure Gauge. Monitor Pressure Cuff of COVID-19 Patients
For critically ill patients, respiratory support therapy is an important life support measure. Endotracheal cuff pressure monitoring is one of the most important management measures that cannot be ignored in airway management. For ICU COVID-19 patients, plenty of recommendations have been made for artificial airway management and sputum suction.
Artificial airway management
Using an electronic airbag pressure gauge to continuously monitor the airbag pressure in real-time is a must. A Pressure Gauge ensures effective ventilation and reduces the environmental pollution caused by aspiration and air leakage, also reduces airway mucosal compression damage caused by over-inflation of the airbag.
After the artificial airway is established, Specialists recommend the airbag pressure should be maintained at 25~30 cmH2O, and the airbag pressure gauge should be used for routine monitoring (every 6-8 h).
Sputum suction operation
The results of an analysis on Covid-19 Patients suggest that a large amount of mucus is allocated in the alveoli. Therefore, is hard to clear mucus, this might be one of the main reasons for the high mortality of severe patients. In order to improve mechanical ventilation, is necessary to remove mucus secretion in small airways.
In the process of sputum suction, the patient’s airbag should be managed to ensure that the airbag pressure is maintained at 25-30cmH2O. It is recommended to use an electronic airbag pressure gauge, which can continuously monitor the airbag pressure in real-time. Once the airbag pressure exceeds 25-30cmH2O during operation, Cuff Pressure Gauge can automatically alarm to prompt the adjustment of the pressure.
Cuff Pressure Gauge is the first electronic medical device that can continuously monitor the pressure, uses real-time monitoring, abnormal alarm, digital display, precise measurement, is compact and convenient, etc. When the pressure in the bladder falls below or exceeds the set range, the automatic alarm function is activated in time to ensure that the pressure in the bladder is in a safe range and minimize the patient’s potential risk of ventilator-related pneumonia; replace traditional manual pressure measurement, reduce the number of nurses’ operations, and reduce risk of infection.
