Abstract: A plastic medical respiratory conduit is provided having a first tubular helical coil conduit communicating with a first source of fluid. The coil conduit is wrapped with a pliable tape to form a second conduit communicating with a second source of fluid. Resilient couplers can be attached to each end of the conduit to form part of a medical ventilator or humidification system, the resulting ventilator or humidification system providing heretofore unavailable advantages.
Abstract: An endotracheal tube is fitted with a leak preventing cuff. The cuff encompasses the tube and is made self-inflating by opening a respiratory gas flow passage through the tube wall from the interior of the tube to the interior of the cuff. The function of the tube is enhanced, and safety is improved, by molding the distal end of the tube.
Abstract: An intubation set is disclosed which incorporates a special fastening means by which the tube can be fixed conveniently and effectively to the body of a patient at a point adjacent to the body opening into which the tube has been inserted. The set includes a special connector by which it may be securely associated.
