Product Overview

Unomedical Specialty Tracheal Tubes

Designed to provide a reliable airway during a variety of applications in general anesthesia, intensive care and emergency medicine.

Sof-Touch™ Extra-Soft Tracheal Tubes

Unomedical Sof-Touch™ Extra-Soft Tracheal Tubes are designed with extra soft material to provide a flexible yet kink-resistant solution for improved adaption to the airway anatomy, particularly suitable for nasal and/or long-term intubation and for use with fiberoptic scopes.

Sof-Touch™ Extra-Soft Tracheal Tubes are also available in anatomically preformed versions designed for nasal intubation.

Preformed Tracheal Tubes

Unomedical Preformed Tracheal Tubes include anatomically pre-shaped tubes specifically for nasal and oral intubation to direct the anesthesia circuit away from the operative field - either in cranial or in caudal direction.

Unomedical Preformed Tracheal Tubes are available in a variety of configurations including pediatric and adult versions.

Tracheal Tubes with Subglottic Suction

Unomedical Tracheal Tubes with Subglottic Suction have an additional suction lumen and suction eye above the cuff for subglottic drainage, designed to decrease incidence of ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) in long-term ventilated patients.10

The Tracheal Tubes with Subglottic Suction are available with HVLP cuff or with Muco-Safe® PUR Cuff to support long-term ventilation at lower sealing pressures.

UnoFlex™ Reinforced Tracheal Tubes

UnoFlex™ Reinforced Tracheal Tubes are specially designed with a spiral wire embedded in the tube wall to prevent collapse and obstruction when bent at an acute angle during difficult conditions. With an additional radiopaque line at the tip - the entire tube is X-ray visible from shaft to tip providing for reliable inspection of tube positioning by chest radiography.

UnoFlex™ Reinforced Tracheal Tubes are available in a variety of configurations including pediatric and adult versions and preloaded with stylet.

Microlaryngeal Tubes (MLT)

Unomedical Microlaryngeal Tubes (MLT) are specifically designed for use in microlaryngeal surgery.

Compared to a standard Magill tracheal tube, an MLT has longer length but smaller diameter to provide greater accessibility and visibility in the surgical field.

The cuff with a larger resting diameter supports secure positioning in the laryngeal area. A distinctive blue cuff color helps to improve its visibility during surgery, which take place in the area near to the cuff.
