The TacMed™ Tracheal Tool simplifies the process of performing surgical airways in the field by incorporating two key components in one compact, multi-function package. The design allows the hook to act as a sharps container for the used blade or it allows the user to rotate the blade creating a full length scalpel when greater control is required. This minimizes the risk of losing the blade when conducting the procedure in challenging environments that may require additional incisions. It also keeps all of the essential items in the work area, but out of the way. When working in low light or confined space, this greatly contributes to reduced procedure time and increased effectiveness. Patent pending.
