The Control-Cric Surgical Cricothyroidotomy Device is a novel device that is tactically designed and packaged. The result is fast, accurate placement and higher success rates when compared to traditional airway techniques.

Failure to secure an airway is the second leading cause of preventable battlefield death. The Control-Cric system is a tactically designed system for performing a cricothyrotomy, resulting in a fast, accurate placement with higher success rates when compared to established airway techniques.

The intuitive design of the Cric-Key has a pre-shaped stylet that provides airway confirmation with tactile feel of the tracheal rings. It confirms airway placement through distinct sensory feedback, ensuring proper use by operators with limited surgical skills in challenging environments. A study performed by USA ISR demonstrates a 100% success rate vs. a 66% success rate for traditional surgical airway techniques.

The Cric-Knife as unique scalpel design and integrated trach hook slides down into the incision to ensure proper insertion of the cricothyrotomy tube. The hook makes a distinct ”click” sound when it is in the correct position under the thyroid cartilage and stays in position until the cricothyrotomy tube is fully inserted. Control-Cric delivers the confidence to execute a lifesaving surgical procedure when it counts.
