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.
In order to master a cricothyrotomy in an emergency successfully, training on simulators (see page 33) seems to be indispensable.


VBM provides specific devices for every scenario of the surgical airway, like:
  • Surgical airway with Surgicric I and II
  • Narrow bore cannula with Jet-Ventilation Catheters and Manujet III
  • Wide bore cannula with Quicktrach I,II and Surgicric III


Quicktrach I

Quicktrach I is available in 2 sizes, for adults (I.D. 4.0 mm) and children (I.D. 2.0 mm).

Quicktrach II

Quicktrach II receives with the cuff, the saftey clip and the special metal needle additional features. Available for adults (I.D. 4 mm).

Cuff at the Quicktrach II

The Cuff is made of ultra-thin material and is very robust. It allows sufficient ventilation with aspiration protection.

Memory Effect at the Quicktrach II

After complete removal of the metal needle the anatomically shaped cannula adjusts to the trachea due to the „memory effect“.

Prevention of Trauma

The needle tip is covered by the plastic cannula and therefore does not cause injury to the posterior tracheal wall.

packaging in plastic tube

In addition to the standard blister packaging we offer the Quicktrach in a compact and robust plastic tube. Ideal for emergency bags.
