The Rusch QuickTrach Emergency Cricothyrotomy Kit allows quick and safe access for ventilation in the presence of acute respiratory distress with upper airway obstruction. A removable stopper reduces the risk of damage to the rear wall of the trachea. A conical needle tip guarentees the smallest necessary stoma and reduces bleeding. The syringe allows for the identification of the trachea by aspirating air. The kit is ready to use and consists of a pre-assembled emergency crisothyrotomy unit with a 10mL syringe attached to a padded neck strap and a connecting tube. This single use kit is sterile and latex free.
