EndoFlex™ was designed to be used in difficult intubations, where a
stylet would normally be used, as well as a standard endotracheal tube.
Unlike ordinary tracheal tubes EndoFlex allows practitioners to quickly and
safely manipulate a flexible distal tip when they encounter tricky or difficult airway
situations without switching tubes or adding a stylet.
EndoFlex endotracheal tubes and components are manufactured from the finest and purest medical-grade resins available.The tubes are manufactured in one of the largest tracheal tube plants in the world.This plant is one of the very few facilities worldwide to receive the stringent certifications of the FDA, ISO, CE, and the Japanese Ministry of Health. Products are constantly monitored during the manufacturing process for material integrity, manufacturing continuity, quality controls and plant conditions.
Specially designed heated and tapered tooling provides EndoFlex with the smoothest Murphy eye in the industry. After creating the Murphy eye, each tube is carefully hand-checked for smoothness. Proprietary tooling is then used to gently taper and smooth the distal tip to prevent tissue irritation.
The dimension of the lumens in EndoFlex is critical. Therefore, tube extrusions must be run very slowly through extremely accurate tooling to maintain the precise tolerances required.
To assure the integrity of the self-sealing valve of the pilot balloon and the inflatable cuff, each tube is fully inflated and checked for possible leakage prior to packaging and sterilization. Universal 15mm connectors assure secure attachment to ventilator circuits.
Our high volume/low pressure cuff is designed to equalize and reduce pressure against tracheal tissue, assuring an excellent seal, which may also help prevent VAP.
Inner cartons are packaged with 10 tubes and the tube pouch and carton labeling is color coded and easy to read. Every pouch and carton is also bar coded for accurate identification and inventory control.
EndoFlex is distributed in limited sizes in the United States, with a full line of sizes and cuff configurations available on a special order basis. The full line of EndoFlex products is available internationally through
