J Med Eng Technol. Sep-Oct 1985;9(5):229-30. doi: 10.3109/03091908509032104.

Abstract

An instrument has been developed for measuring and controlling the pressures in the cuffs of tracheal tubes. It was devised to protect the trachea from high cuff pressure and to prevent aspiration past the cuff.
