DuCanto Catheter Shop SSCOR Products

The SSCOR DuCanto Catheter is a new catheter that is unlike traditional Yankauer suction tips that are designed for controlled surgical settings. The SSCOR DuCanto Catheter was developed with both routine and emergency airway management in mind. It has a larger internal diameter making it significantly less likely to clog and is shaped to fit the oropharyngeal anatomy. The hyper curved catheter is shaped more like a patient's airway making it easy to position the catheter.

“In contrast to general purpose rigid suction catheters based on the Yankauer design, this product is intended to serve as a simple and effective tool to support routine and emergency airway management.”
- James C. DuCanto, M.D.

Additionally, the SSCOR DuCanto Catheter does not have a thumb port. By removing the vacuum control, the caregiver does not need to locate and continuously occlude the thumb port to clear a patient’s airway. This allows continuous suction and keeps hands free.

All of these features enable the SSCOR DuCanto Catheter to be used effectively in the SALAD technique.

New Call-to-action

The SALAD (Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination) technique calls for constant suction provided by a catheter in the upper airway, continuously removing vomit, blood and other materials, around which the practitioner intubates the patient
via either direct or video laryngoscopy. The SSCOR DuCanto Catheter is ideal for this procedure. Click here more information on SALAD.
