A surgical approach to a cricothyrotomy that helps to maintain control during a high-stress situation. This quick and controlled cricothyrotomy has been created to perform a blind cricothyrotomy in under 2 minutes, and is packaged to simplify the procedure. Cric-Knife™ - The Cric-Knife consists of a 10mm long dual sided blade with an integrated sliding trach hook. The dual sided blade makes it easier to widen the airway via slight side to side movement. The sliding trach hook helps to maintain placement of the airway. Cric-Key™ - The Cric-Key has a preshaped stylet that provides tactile feel of the tracheal rings for airway confirmation. It also has a 5.5mm soft cric-tube with cuff. Once the airway is confirmed via the stylet and the Cric-Key is fully inserted, the stylet can be removed and the cuff inflated.
