PRIFLEX® MRI stand for a new generation of tracheostomy tubes with plastic spiral reinforcement which are suitable for MRI.
These tracheostomy tubes do not contain any metal parts – even the pilot balloon is equipped with a special plastic spring -, what makes them suitable for patients who undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) procedure or need radiation therapy.
They combine a high form stability with soft and flexible material features, which is also characteristic for tubes with classical metal spiral reinforcement. The soft and flexible tube flange is variably adjustable by a simple screw cap. It adapts exactly to the individual patient requirements.
A scale on the tracheostomy tube facilitates the exact positioning, and a firm 15 mm universal connector enables the attachment of accessories (HME and speaking valves) as well as mechanical ventilators.
The integrated plastic spiral ensures the form stability and kink resistance of the tracheostomy tubes.
PRIFLEX® MRI tracheostomy tubes are suitable especially for the use in ventilated neurological patients, as well as in patients whose treatment plan includes MRI or radiation therapy.
