It is very important to have safe sealing pressures in cuffs so as (a) not to cause pressure problems on the tracheal mucosa and (b) to ensure a safe seal to help prevent aspiration during swallowing.
The face of the gauge is clearly marked in green with a “safe” pressure zone of 20 – 30 cms H2O and an area indicated red where pressure in cuffs would be deemed to be higher than recommended. To be used in conjunction with tube manufacturers’ inflatable cuff guidelines.
