The Shiley™ Adult Flexible Tracheostomy Tube Cuffless is a dual cannula tracheostomy tube with a disposable inner cannula. The device is used to provide an artificial airway in order to provide access to the patient’s airway for airway management. It contains an integrated 15mm connector for use with standard ventilation and anesthesia equipment. The tracheostomy tube has a radiopaque outer cannula constructed of polyvinyl chloride. A pliable neck plate allows conformity to individual neck anatomies and contains two suture holes. The tapered tracheostomy tube tip is compatible with percutaneous insertion. The smooth, rounded tip obturator facilitates insertion. The disposable inner cannula is translucent for easy inspection and allows for airway maintenance. This tracheostomy tube can be used with or without the disposable inner cannula included in the package however, use of the inner cannula is recommended.

Initial Placement:

Help Enable Easier Insertion and Removal
  • Low profile cuff—A thinner, less bulky cuff reduces insertion force by 39%.1
  • Beveled tip—A beveled tip on all product configurations eases percutaneous insertion.
May Enhance Patient Fit and Comfort
  • Flexible cannula—The outer cannula is flexible enough to conform to the patient’s
    but rigid enough to maintain airway patency.
  • Familiar sizes—The tubes use sizing (I.D., O.D., length and tube curvature) that is substantially equivalent to those used in earlier Shiley™ products.
  • Size choices—Additional sizes have been added to improve patient fit when needed.

Mechanical Ventilation:

Help Improve Clinician’s Ability to Provide Mechanical Ventilation
  • Taper-shaped-cuff—The ability to titrate ventilator air leak is 65% greater with the addition of TaperGuard™ cuff technology.2
  • Integrated connector—The 15 mm connector on the Shiley™ flexible tracheostomy tubes is now integrated into the outer cannula, which enables ventilation with or without an inner cannula.

Skin Care:

May Reduce the Risk of Skin Breakdown
  • Flange material—The flange features a transparent, soft material designed to conform to the patient’s clavicle to help reduce the risk of skin breakdown.
  • Flange windows—The central portion of the flange has windows designed to improve airflow to sensitive skin. It is offset to help reduce contact with the patient’s skin.
Trachea, Lung Protection and Weaning
Help Protect the Lungs
  • Taper-shaped-cuff—With the TaperGuard™ cuff, the tube reduces fluid leakage by 99%.3
Help Reduce Impact on the Trachea
  • Wall pressure—The tube exerts 18.6%4 less lateral wall pressure on the trachea.1


Help Reduce the Work of Breathing
  • Increased airflow—Airflow around the outer cannula when the cuff is deflated has increased by an average of 242%.1
  • Work of breathing—Improved airflow may reduce the work of breathing required to speak and wean from a tracheostomy tube.5

Other Features:

  • New material—Shiley™ tracheostomy tubes are now manufactured with a citrate-based plasticizer.
  • Color coding—Color coding (for disposable inner cannula products only) by size helps clinicians quickly identify the right inner cannula for the corresponding tube.
  • Disposable inner cannula—The inner cannula is designed for quick and safe disposal after a single use.
