Cuff Manometer

The use of VBM Cuff Pressure Gauges in combination with High Volume Low Pressure Cuffs can reduce micro-aspiration and prevent VAP from occurring in the first place.

 

The devices reduce the risk of pressure necrosis and mucosal ischemia. They help preventing the risk of aspiration which can lead to the possibility of pneumonia.

 

The analog system with no dependence on any energy source makes the VBM cuff pressure gauges highly reliable under any circumstances (outdoor, transport, OR). The accuracy of the display as well as the pre-defined pressure ranges help users to maintain the correct pressure with any kind of airway devices.


Cuff Pressure Measuring and Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP)

Cuff pressure gauges have been established as a standard device in many clinical institutions. More and more societies of anaesthesiology and intensive care throughout the world are endorsing the systematic control of cuff pressure in the recommendation of their guidelines. Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is the leading nosocomial cause of mortality in the Intensive Care Unit and has signifi cant impact on hospital costs and length of stay. A leading cause of VAP is micro-aspiration of potentially infectious secretions through microchannels formed from infolding of redundant cuff material after infl ation. Cuff pressure management can contribute to reduce tracheal ischemia and subsequent complications. Availability of the device and precision of the measurement are fundamental to the success of treatments.

 

As the inventor of the cuff manometer, VBM is committed to drive the development of cuff pressure measuring in hospitals. In developing new cuff pressure gauges VBM follows three main principles: Reliability, accuracy and ease of use.

 

VBM offers the largest choice of systems, covering analog, digital and automatic devices, pediatric and adult for OR, pre-hospital and ICU environment.
