CASS suction regulator

Boehringer Laboratories Inc

Boehringer Laboratories Inc, Norristown, Pa, offers its CASS suction regulator, which has been shown to effectively remove tenacious secretions. Developed in conjunction with respiratory professionals, this regulator includes a special pulse mechanism that moves secretions while protecting the patient from injury by effectively maintaining a safe applied level of suction. Continuous aspiration of subglottic secretions (CASS) has been reported to be effective in reducing the incidence of ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP). CASS is made possible with the use of special endotracheal tubes containing an additional lumen to allow for the removal of secretions above the cuff. (800) 642-4945;
