The SSCOR DuCanto Catheter is a single-use, non-sterile, rigid suction catheter specifically designed to be used by emergency care providers to aspirate liquids or semi-solids from a patient’s upper airway.
The SSCOR DuCanto Catheter has a larger inside diameter than a standard Yankauer suction tip to facilitate the removal of fluids as well as solid material. The larger suction lumen makes it significantly less likely to clog in an emergency situation.
The hyper curved catheter is shaped more like a patient's airway making it easy to position the catheter and work with other complementary devices used to clear a patient’s airway.
Instrumental in the SALAD Technique (Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination).

“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.”
