The role of the cuff of the Endotracheal Tube

The role of cuff of the endotracheal tube is very important. It is mainly used to fix the trachea. After the cuff is inflated, it will be stuck in the airway. On the one hand, it prevents airway leakage and on the other hand, it fixes the trachea to prevent it from falling out. Because the trachea is put into the airway, air will be injected into the cuff with an empty needle, and the inflated cuff will prop up the airway wall and play a fixed role. In addition, if necessary, use a ventilator to prevent air leakage.
