Vettubes™ – Straight ET Tubes

Vettubes™ – Straight ET Tubes

Product description

As a veterinarian, have you ever wondered why endotracheal tubes are actually bent? The answer is very simple: Because they are made for the human market and the anatomy of a human throat requires a bend in the tube. But this has changed for veterinary applications . Vettubes are the first in the European market, offering a disposable endotracheal tube specially made for small pets, the most important feature of which is that it is straight! Actually very logical, because when you intubate a pet you stretch the neck and thus the throat area and the pharynx, larynx and trachea lie in an almost straight line. With a straight tube, intubation is easier and there is less chance of damage to the sensitive tissue in this area. And not only that, there is also less chance of damage to the tube itself because it is much easier to manipulate along the sometimes very sharp teeth and molars.

Veterinarian Joost van der Veer has been involved in the development process of this innovative tube and has now been using it for several weeks: “As I had hoped, intubation is a lot easier with this tube. This is useful for the vet, but not only that. It also ensures that there is less chance of damage to the animal’s vocal cords and/or mucous membranes, a nice improvement.”

Product Features

As you would expect, the tube is made of harmless PVC, has a rounded tip with extra safety opening, a radiopaque line and a high-volume low-pressure cuff. In addition, the tube has a high-quality inflation system with valve and pressure balloon. The glued connector is innovative. This means that the connection can no longer suddenly come loose during the procedure.
