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
Enhanced Patient Comfort
Soft, tapered and kink-resistant wire is coated in a polymeric jacket to assure minimal irritation while in position.
Staged Reintubation Catheter allows quick access and oxygen delivery to help stabilise the patient.
