Cook Emergency Pneumothorax Set 8.5FR/6cm
COOK EMERGENCY PNEUMOTHORAX SET.
Intended for emergency relief and temporary management of suspected tension pneumothorax.
Because tracheal deviation and jugular venous distention may not always be identified, a tension pneumothorax should be suspected when the following three criteria are identified: 1) Increasing respiratory distress or difficulty ventilating a patient with a bag-valve-mask device. 2) Markedly decreased or absent breath sounds on the ipsilateral side. 3) Hemodynamic compromise (decompensated shock) manifested by hypo-tension and/or evidence of diminished perfusion.
Sold as an each.
