Disposable Flexible Catheter Mount Parts

  1. Interface Adapters: Typically located at both ends, these are used to connect the endotracheal tube and the tubing from ventilators or anesthesia machines. These interface adapters usually conform to international standard sizes, such as a 15mm diameter interface, ensuring compatibility with various types of equipment.

  2. Middle Flexible Hose: This part connects the two adapters and is made of highly elastic and durable medical-grade plastic or rubber materials to ensure sufficient flexibility and durability. It allows the tubing to move freely without exerting extra pressure, reducing the pull on the patient's airway.

  3. Swivel Joint: Some models may include a swivel joint, allowing the tubing part to rotate freely without disconnecting. This helps to further reduce mechanical stress on the patient's airway and the inserted tube.

  4. Fixing Clamps or Connectors: These are used to securely fix the Catheter Mount to the patient, bed, or other support structures, ensuring stability and preventing accidental movement or dislodging.

  5. Filters or Humidification Components: Some advanced models might include built-in filters or humidification components to improve the quality of the breathing gases, providing better comfort and safety for the patient.

  6. Materials and Manufacturing: These parts are typically made from non-toxic, biocompatible materials such as flexible plastics, silicone, or polyvinyl chloride (PVC), ensuring safety and performance during use.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Disposable Flexible Catheter Mount

Frequently_Asked_Questions.png

Q1:What is a Catheter Mount?

A1:A Catheter Mount is a specialized medical device used to connect a patient's endotracheal tube or tracheostomy tube to a mechanical ventilator, anesthesia machine, or other respiratory support systems. It acts as a flexible link between the patient and the equipment, allowing for movement and positional adjustments without exerting undue stress on the airway. Typically made from medical-grade materials, catheter mounts are designed for durability, flexibility, and compatibility with standard respiratory equipment.


Q2:What are the Disadvantages of Catheter Mounts?

A2:While catheter mounts are invaluable in respiratory care, they have some disadvantages. One issue is the potential for disconnection or leakages if not properly secured, which can lead to a compromise in patient ventilation. In the case of reusable mounts, there's a risk of cross-contamination if not adequately cleaned and sterilized. For disposable mounts, there's an environmental concern due to increased medical waste. Also, the need for regular replacement in long-term care settings can increase operational costs.


Q3:What Size is a Catheter Mount?

A3:The size of a catheter mount can vary, but most are designed to fit standard sizes of respiratory equipment. Typically, the connection points conform to a 15mm diameter interface, a common size in respiratory tubes and connectors. The length and flexibility of the tube part of the mount can also vary, designed to accommodate different clinical settings and patient needs. Manufacturers often provide specific dimensions and size options to ensure compatibility and functionality in various medical scenarios.
