Anaesthesia/Critical Care

  • Cook® Redo TPN® Single Lumen Catheters and Sets

    Used for administration of parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy, other therapeutic drugs and blood.

    • The synthetic fibre is affixed to the catheter to allow tissue ingrowth
    • Circumferential suture rings allow catheter to be secured to skin with suture during tissue ingrowth into cuff
    • The Peel-Away sheath allows the catheter to be introduced percutaneously.

    Supplied sterile in peel-open packages. Intended for one-time use.

  • Cook® Retrograde Intubation Sets with Rapi-Fit Adapters

    Used to assist in the placement of an endotracheal tube during difficult airway access procedures.

    • Initial access using the Seldinger technique via the cricothyroid membrane permits retrograde (cephalad directed) placement of a wire guide existing orally or nasally
    • Antegrade introduction of a hollow guiding catheter with distal side-ports and Rapi-Fit Adapters allows patient oxygenation and facilitates placement of an endotracheal tube

    Supplied sterile in peel-open packages. Intended for one-time use.

  • Cook® Spectrum Antibiotic Impregnated Catheters – Single, Double, Triple and Quin Lumen

    Cook Spectrum catheters are impregnated with the antimicrobials minocycline and rifampin.

  • 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.

  • Cook® Teitel Paediatric Pericardiocentesis Set

    Used to drain fluid from the pericardial sac. The ‘alligator clip’ cable is attached to the hub of the needle for constant electrocardiographic monitoring during needle insertion. Supplied sterile in peel-open packages. Intended for one-time use.

  • Cook® Tiger Tube – Self-Advancing Nasal Jejunal Feeding Tube

    Provides short-term enteral access for delivery of nutrition and/or medication to the small bowel.

    • The unique, alternating, cilia-like flaps along the Tiger Tube help to quickly advance it into the distal portions of the small bowel via peristalsis
    • The self-advancing placement reduces the risk of perforation or misplacement and avoids costly endoscopy or fluoroscopy procedures
    • The early post-pyloric placement allows nutritional goals to be met sooner which could lead to a shorter length of stay in the ICU

    Supplied sterile in peel-open packages. Intended for one-time use.

  • Cook® TPN® Single, Double and Triple Lumen Catheters and Sets

    Used for administration of parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy, other therapeutic drugs and blood.

    • The synthetic fibre cuff is affixed to the catheter to allow tissue ingrowth
    • The Peel-Away sheath allows the catheter to be introduced percutaneously

    Supplied sterile in peel-open packages. Intended for one-time use.

  • Cook® Turbo-JeCT™ Power Injectable PICC

    Cook Medical has now complemented its comprehensive range of PICC lines with the addition of Turbo-JeCT.

    With the introduction of the Turbo-JeCT PICC line, you can now power inject contrast media at industry-best range of maximum flow rates, choose from multiple configurations and use the standard Echogenic needle.

    Features:

    • Maximum flow rate of 7cc/sec
    • The first 4 French double lumen power injectable PICC
    • Maximum pressure limit settings of 325 psi
    • All testing verified on industry leading MedRad Stellant CT Injector
    • Echogenic Needle standard. Specifically designed to enhance imaging while reducing potential vessel trauma
  • Mercury Medical 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.

  • Mercury Medical® 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.
