  • Cook® Staged Extubation Set

    Introduce staged extubation into your airway management strategy

    Even with well-designed protocols, postextubation airway failure remains a significant risk in all patient populations.  In addition to the obvious safety issues, it also requires additional time, documentation and resources.

    What is staged extubation?

    Staged extubation uses a Staged Extubation Wire to maintain continuous airway access and a Staged Reintubation Catheter to facilitate a successful reintubation if required.
    Benefits of staged intubation:

    • A study with an airway catheter showed a fivefold higher success rate of first-attempt reintubation¹
    • Avoidance of complications associated with failed or difficult reintubation²
    • Ability to trial extubation earlier while maintaining secure airway access¹

    Product Features

    Enhanced Patient Comfort
    Soft, tapered and kink-resistant wire is coated in a polymeric jacket to assure minimal irritation while in position.

    Maintained Access
    Staged Reintubation Catheter allows quick access and oxygen delivery to help stabilise the patient.

    Total Airway Control
    With the Staged Extubation Set, in addition to Cook’s comprehensive airway management product offering, you can control the airway from intubation, exchange, extubation and reintubation.

  • SalterLabs air-Q SP Self Pressurising Masked Laryngeal Airway

    Masked Laryngeal Airway Prevents Overinflation – Take the Guesswork out of Mask Cuff Inflation

    • The new air-Q SP eliminates the extra step and guesswork for mask cuff inflation and the potential for over-inflation.  The new design allows Positive Pressure Ventilation to self-pressurise the mask cuff. The increase in cuff seal pressure occurs at the exact time you need it, during the upstroke of ventilation.
    • On exhalation the cuff decompresses to the level of the PEEP.
    • The result is a safer, efficient, low pressure seal during the majority of the case.  The cyclical lowering in intra-cuff pressure may assist in diminishing complications such as mucosal and nerve trauma that result from over-inflating traditional peripheral laryngeal mask cuffs
    • Allows intubation like the regular air-Q
    • The SP version can be used as an “everyday” airway that facilitates intubation.

    With the new Self-Pressurising, Disposable air-Q SP, there is no need to inflate the mask; it self-pressurises to the proper inflation pressure automatically.

  • SalterLabs air-Q® Intubating Laryngeal Mask

    Developed and designed following eight years of clinical research by American anaesthesiologist Dr Daniel Cook, the disposable air-Q is a superior passive airway device available in new infant sizes and provides:

    • Ease of placement
    • Better seal in everyday use
    • Improved intubation success

    It can facilitate the passing of any standard endotracheal tube and can also remain in place during the procedure. A disposable removable stylet is available separately to aid the removal of the air-Q while leaving the ET Tube in place.

  • SalterLabs® Flex-It® Directional Stylet

    The SalterLabs Flex-It Directional Stylet can be used for oral and nasal intubation and requires no pre-bending. Easy thumb action allows tube curvature to be continuously adjusted during an intubation. Its one-handed operation is designed to facilitate quick, accurate intubation, and it is especially helpful for intubating the most difficult airways.

  • SalterLabs® Flex-Tip® Endotracheal Tube

    The patented SalterLabs Flex-Tip Tracheal Tube has a soft, flexible, curved, centred, distal tip that is designed to prevent trauma to the delicate structures of the human airway. This tip, which is flanked by double Murphy eyes, flexes and yields as it is advanced into contact with protruding features of airway anatomy. The centred tip tends to move along the midline of the airway and the glottic opening. The tip’s curvature predisposes it to “ski” gently along airway surfaces.

    The centred, curved tube tip lies closely against the wall of the fiberscope or introducer and minimises any gap between them which could contribute to the tube hang-ups in the larynx which frequently occur when using a tube with a standard, side-bevelled tip.
