The Surgicric is a cricothyrotomy set to maintain ventilation in case of obstruction of the upper airway.
Surgicric II is applied to the classical surgical technique and Surgicric III allows a cricothyrotomy according to the Seldinger technique.
The main feature of Surgicric is the special combination of tube and dilator. The locking mechanism and the soft tip maximise patient safety and reduce the risk of injury.
Surgical airway is the ultima ratio for the unsuccessful arm of the emergency pathway. Identification 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:
Soft dilator tip, thus avoiding injury to the posterior tracheal wall. Smooth transition from dilator to the tracheal tube.
Checking the position of the tracheal tube thanks to aspiration through dilator.
The thin-walled, low pressure cuff guarantees a perfect seal, allows efficient ventilation and protects against aspiration.
The unique locking mechanism prevents accidental dislocation of the dilator from the tracheal tube during insertion.
The specially designed tracheal tube is longer than a standard tracheostomy tube and with the adjustable flange allows individual adaptation to the anatomical conditions of the patient.
