The AGENTO® I.C. silver-coated endotracheal tube (ETT) is a scientifically proven, ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) preventive device for patients at risk of intubation for 24 hours or longer that minimizes user dependence. In a multicenter clinical trial comparing the silver-coated device to an uncoated tube, the percentage of patients who developed microbiologically confirmed VAP was reduced by 36% for those that received the AGENTO® I.C. silver-coated ETT.
Outcomes also showed that the AGENTO® I.C. silver-coated endotracheal tube was associated with a 48% relative risk reduction in microbiologically confirmed VAP incidence within 10 days of intubation.
