In response to the NAP4 study addressing the clinical need for both Seldinger and surgical cricothyrotomy procedures to be taught side-by-side, Cook Medical has launched a compact surgical set. This cricothyrotomy range expansion allows clinicians to stay up to date with the latest developments, and builds on Cook's experience in designing products for Seldinger and emergency airway procedures.
The surgical set can be used both inside and outside hospital settings. It is specifically packaged for procedural use and is suitable for smaller work spaces. It is also easily transported in medical kit bags and packs.
The Melker cuffed emergency cricothyrotomy catheter set surgical version is now available across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The set includes a safety scalpel, Trousseau dilator, tracheal hook, blunt curved dilator, syringe, tracheostomy tape and airway catheter.
