TrachyCalm is a new ET tube lubricant specifically designed for veterinary use. It is specially formulated to provide the right viscosity and maintain hydration and lubrication during anaesthesia.
Water-based, TrachyCalm is suitable for use in all species.
ET tubes can cause tracheal irritation and lead to post-operative sore throat and cough. The practice of lubricating tubes with water, although common, is not recommended.
TrachyCalm, with it's unique bio-degradeable applicator allows ET tubes to be lubricated safely prior to intubation.
The formulation provides easy tube placement and minimises risk of tracheal trauma. TrachyCalm is massively hygroscopic and maintains moisture in the trachea.
The unique single-use applicator can also be used prior to extubation to avoid tube adherance on withdrawal.
