Intended to assist in the placement of an endotracheal tube during difficult or emergency airway access procedures where visualisation of the vocal cords is not possible secondary to secretions, blood and/or anatomic anomalies.
Features and benefits
- Using the Seldinger technique via the cricothyroid membrane for initial access permits retrograde (cephalad) placement of a wire guide that exits orally or nasally.
- The catheter’s tapered tip allows for smoother navigation through the patient’s anatomy.
- Antegrade introduction of a hollow guiding catheter with distal sideports and Rapi-Fit®️ Adapters allows you to provide the patient with oxygen and facilitates placement of an endotracheal tube.
