Airway Management


VAR® (VORTRAN® Automatic Resuscitator) device:  The VAR® device is a unique single-patient-use, disposable resuscitator. It provides hands-free ventilator support via a mask or endotracheal tube using a continuous gas flow source. The VAR® device can be operated on a compressor, oxygen or compressed air. Since it does not require the use of electricity or batteries, it is an ideal backup ventilator for the management of mass casualty incidents, natural disasters, disease outbreaks, major power outages and other extraordinary emergencies. An additional advantage of the VAR® device is that it does not interfere with MRI and CT scans. The VAR® device comes in two different options – either with strictly 100% FiO2 or with an entrainment feature to allow for 50% oxygen consumption.  More information and specifications can be found here.

VAR® device Surgical Center Kit:  The VAR® device Surgical Center Kit meets CMS Ventilatory Assistance Equipment Mandate, as well as the FDA and ASTM guidelines for gas-powered, automatic resuscitators. The kit includes 3 VARS, an oxygen regulator, test lung, and training CD. Since all stand-alone surgery centers are required to have backup emergency ventilation, our kit is the most effective and least costly option.  More information and specifications can be found here.

RES-Q-VAC® Hand Held Suction Device: The RES-Q-VAC is a hand-operated advanced suction system which provides a full range of suction catheter options for patients in the hospital, at home or in the field for emergencies. It consists of a high-quality non-electric suction pump and disposable canisters with appropriate catheters. The system is totally portable, has a very long shelf life and can provide suction anywhere and anytime it is needed.  More information and specifications can be found here.
