IntelliCuff as a standard feature to prevent VAP

We use IntelliCuff as a standard feature to prevent VAP in mechanically ventilated patients. IntelliCuff controls the cuff pressure automatically and regularly. This is a great help for us caregivers since we don’t have to check the cuff pressure manually every hour.
