CritiPack® Surgical Cricothyroidotomy Kit

Emergency Surgical Cricothyroidotomy in the can’t intubate, can’t ventilate scenario is a life-saving procedure that is designed to restore ventilation and oxygenation in airway compromised patients.

Surgical cricothyroidotomy is the airway of choice in combat medicine. It is well documented that performing orotracheal intubation in combat environments is often not viable due to time constraints and because light visible from operating intubation equipment, may potentially provide easy target access to the enemy.

Be Safe Paramedical South Africa are pleased to bring you the CritiPack® Surgical Cricothyroidotomy Kit. The kit provides access to all the equipment required to perform rapid surgical cricothyroidotomy in the field. This kit facilitates tube placement by means of a Jackson-type tracheal hook with large finger curve for stability, when performing the procedure in high-risk patient care zones.

CritiPack® Needle Chest Decompression Kit

Standard clinical management of a suspected tension pneumothorax includes insertion of a cannula into the pleural cavity. When a patient has a tension pneumothorax, needle chest decompression can be life-saving.

There have been widespread reports of complications following needle chest decompression. Commonly used devices, such as intravenous cannula, may not be long enough to reach the pleural space or they may kink and occlude.
