Bard Home Health Div Tracheal Suction Plastic Catheter Kit 10Fr, Sterile, Contains 22" Plastic Catheter with Thumb Valve, Pop-up Solution Container and Two Vinyl Gloves in Peel-open Package
Suction catheters are flexible, long tubes used to remove respiratory secretionsFrom the airway. The purpose of suctioning is to keep the airway clear of secretions and to prevent plugging. One end of the suction catheter is connected to a collection container (suction canister) and a device that generates suction. The open end is advanced through the airway (endotracheal or tracheostomy tube) to remove secretions. The CATH’N SLEEVE™ Kit has a clear plastic sleeve that envelopes a plastic suction catheter. The sleeve slides over exudate to reduce potential clinician contact.
- The open end is advanced through the airway (endotrachel or tracheostomy tube) to remove secretions.
- The plastic, whistle tip suction catheter has two side eyes and thumb valve.
- Whistle tip and side eyes help minimize trauma to delicate mucosal tissue.
- Single-use, sterile.
