Decompression Kit, Cook Emergency Pneumothorax Set
Intended for emergency relief and temporary management of suspected tension pneumothorax. Because tracheal deviation and jugular venous distention may not always be identified, a tension pneumothorax should be supspected when the following three criteria are identified:
1) Increasing respiratory distress or difficulty ventilating a patient with a bag-valve-mask device.
2) Markedly decreased or absent breath sounds on the ipsilateral side.
3) Hemodynamic compromise (decompensated shock) manifested by hypotension and/or evidence of diminished perfusion.
