Procedure Kit/Trays, Cricothyrotomy

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for performing an incision through the skin, and the cricoid and thyroid membranes (i.e., a cricothyrotomy). Items in these kits usually include a scalpel, a needle, a plastic cannula, an endotracheal tube, a syringe, a dilator, and a curved hemostat for clamping and opening. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. These procedure kits and trays are intended for use during emergency procedures for the relief of an obstructed airway. Cricothyrotomy procedure kits and trays are mainly used in emergency and operating rooms.
