Freelance surgical are a global distributor for medical equipment associated with surgical procedures. The UK Bristol based company have two main specialist fields; Orthopaedic and Anaesthesia. For over 25 years they have nurtured a pioneering relationship with the German based manufacturer VBM. They are notoriously known for extremely high quality and medical ingenuity, inventing and designing lifesaving products such as the cuff manometer.
This year at the Emergency Services Show on stand G19, Freelance Surgical will be offering demonstrations of advanced airway techniques. They have been working with a number of ambulance trusts providing them with free training and product knowledge in a CICO (Can’t intubate can’t oxygenate) scenario. Using simulators, cricothyroidotomy training is delivered with an ingenious piece of advanced airway kit called ‘Quicktrach II’. The wide bore cannula with metal needle eradicates the need to use a scalpel and enables ventilation with a resus bag in a matter of seconds. In addition, the attached cuff provides protection against aspiration. It is extremely effective and very safe to use, there is a safety ‘stopper’ that prevents the needle from being inserted too deep (reducing the risk of posterior tracheal wall perforation).
