Cook® Staged Extubation Set

Product Information

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
