ProFlo® Plain, Straight with Vacutip

The ProFlo® Plain, a straight suction catheter with Vacutip, has a gently rounded aerodynamic tip that permits atraumatic suctioning.


Atraumatic suctioning  The four staggered lateral eyes create airflow around the catheter tip during suctioning. This air cushion minimises contact with the mucous membranes.

Easy identification  KolourKon™ colour coding makes it easy to identify tube connectors and catheters.

Greater control thanks to Vacutip  The Vacutip connector permits fast and effective vacuum elimination. The aspiration of residual volumes is reduced and the risk of hypoxia minimised.

Low-friction surface for quick and easy insertion

Control of insertion depth  Graduation in 1 cm intervals allows the direct control of the insertion depth.
