Anaesthesia/Critical Care

  • 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
  • Hospitech Respiratory AG Cuffill

    The compact and intuitive AG Cuffill device is the most accurate solution for measuring cuff pressure and controlling the volume of airway cuffs in all clinical settings.

    The AG Cuffill is intended for air-filled cuffs and should not be used with liquids.

    • Volume 10cc
    • Measurement range 0-99 (mmHg/cmH20)
    • Measurement accuracy±2 (mmHg/cmH20)
    • Disposable
    • 100 measurements
  • 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.
