Set for surgical cricothyrotomy according to the scalpel technique
eFONA* in CICO situation
According to DAS 2015 guidelines
Compact and lightweight set
ScalpelCric is a surgical set for cricothyrotomy according to the scalpel technique. The set has been developed to match the recommendations from the DAS (Difficult Airway Society) 2015 Guidelines.
Based on the simple description of "stab, twist, bougie, tube", the ScalpelCric is meant to facilitate the execution of eFONA (emergency Front Of Neck Access) in a CICO situation (Cannot Intubate – Cannot Oxygenate). The set is packed in a specific sterile pouch with each component organised in the order of use. This can be important at the critical time of the procedure.
Robust packaging and compact pack size to fit emergency bags, backpacks, crash carts, etc.
