With the Quicktrach I and II we offer two sets for percutaneous cricothyrotomy for adults, children and infants by needle incision.
A quick airway access is made possible with a via one-step procedure. An incision by scalpel isn't necessary. The sterile sets are pre-assembled and immediately ready for use.
Surgical airway is the ultima ratio for the unsuccessful arm of the emergency pathway. Identifi cation of the "cannot intubate – cannot oxygenate" scenario should result in immediate consideration of surgical airway access. Delays in achieving airway control and oxygenation will lead to hypoxic brain injury.
The incidence level of cricothyrotomy is estimated at approximately 1% of all emergency airway cases.
VBM provides specific devices for every scenario of the surgical airway, like:
Quicktrach I is available in 3 sizes, for adults (I.D. 4.0 mm), children (I.D. 2.0 mm)and infants (I.D. 1.5 mm).
Quicktrach II receives with the cuff, the saftey clip and the special metal needle additional features. Available for adults (I.D. 4 mm).
The Cuff is made of ultra-thin material and is very robust. It allows sufficient ventilation with aspiration protection.
After complete removal of the metal needle the anatomically shaped cannula adjusts to the trachea due to the „memory effect“.
The needle tip is covered by the plastic cannula and therefore does not cause injury to the posterior tracheal wall.
In addition to the standard blister packaging we offer the Quicktrach in a compact and robust plastic tube. Ideal for emergency bags.
