Bard's Plastic Catheters and Kits are flexible, long tubes used to remove respiratory secretions from the airway categorized as Respiratory Management tools. The purpose of suctioning is to keep the airway clear of secretions and to prevent plugging. One end of the suction catheter is connected to a collection container (suction canister) and a device that generates suction. The open end is advanced through the airway (endotracheal or tracheostomy tube) to remove secretions. The CATH’N SLEEVE Kit has a clear plastic sleeve that envelopes a plastic suction catheter. The sleeve slides over exudate to reduce potential clinician contact. It also contains two vinyl gloves, and pop-up solution container in peel-open package.
