The Argyle Suction Catheter Kit is an efficient suction catheter kit that is used as a respiratory catheter to clear airways. The catheter helps draw out excessive bodily secretions such as mucus, phlegm, etc. from the patient’s airways and clear them out to restore normal respiratory functions. The kit includes a catheter, two nitrile powder-free gloves and a solution collection cup.
The Suction Catheter included in the kit is a french size fourteen catheter. It features a whistle tip that has a terminal opening as well as a lateral one. The whistle tip is ideal to drain heavy and thick secretions efficiently. To enhance the drainage efficiency, the catheter is also equipped with two staggered and opposite eyelets that also help cover maximum area for drainage. The catheter has a low drag surface construction which minimizes the trauma to the airways and the surrounding tissue to ensure a more comfortable suction. A control vent with a large opening is provided on this catheter to control the rate of suction easily.
The 14 French Suction Catheter Kit also includes two nitrile gloves that are powder and latex-free. The gloves are used to handle the other components and maintain their sterility during use. The gloves are suitable for people with both powder and latex allergies. The gloves have a high tactile sensitivity to ensure that the healthcare professional can perfectly feel the tools they are holding and control them well. The kit also includes a solution collection cup packed in a sterile wrap.
