Clinical Experience

The cuff M and cuff S have been used successfully
in multiple facilities in Europe and US over the last 5 years.
Over 1000 patients have benefited from their use with no complications:


"In our experience, the amount of material aspirated increases by up to 10 times over what we were seeing with manual suctioning by our staff. It has saved time for our staff and reduced our contact with infectious material. And it has been beneficial to our patients, with less force put on the tracheal wall and no trauma from repeated endotracheal suctioning. To date, we have successfully treated over 800 patients using the SIMEX automated Subglottic Aspiration system.”

"In our facility in Nuremburg Germany, our standard of care to remove subglottic secretion was using a simple syringe or just a suction catheter. Four years ago we started evaluating a new aspiration device, the SIMEX cuff S and cuff M, used in conjunction with Tracheal Tubes with a special suction port. The results of this evaluation was so successful that the use of the cuff S or cuff M along with these specialized Tracheal Tubes is now a standard of care in our institution.”

"Using syringe or other conventional suction sources for SSD proved impractical and ineffective in our institution. An 8-month trial of 10 patients using the SIMEX automated subglottic aspiration system resulted in significant increases in volumes of secretions collected, significant decreases in maceration and soiling, and there were no incidents of VAE or VAC.”

"Based on my clinical experience, use of the SIMEX automated subglottic aspiration system helps reduce the risk of pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) by removing aspirated secretions from the subglottic space in intubated or tracheostomized patients."
